At our March 10, 2021, meeting, we’ll get an update on a variety of local multimodal topics. 

The meeting will take place via Zoom and be broadcast and archived on the Ballard District Council YouTube channel.

7-7:10pm — Welcome and announcements

7:10-7:30pm — Seattle City Light Proposed EV Station 
Hernann Ambion from Seattle City Light will provide an overview of the Electric Vehicle (EV)  Charging Station proposed for development at SCL’s former substation lot at 2826 NW Market Street (between the VFW and the Sloop Tavern). 10 minute presentation + Q&A.

7:30-8pm — SDOT Stay Healthy Streets Update
Summer Jawson from Seattle Department of Transportation will update Ballard on the City’s Stay Healthy Streets program, including feedback from last summer’s public survey (9,000 people responded). In 2020, over 20 miles of Neighborhood Greenways were upgraded to Stay Healthy Streets — opened to people walking, rolling, and biking. (Cut-through vehicle traffic is discouraged, but local access, deliveries, waste pickup and emergency vehicles are allowed.) The City is now considering making many of these permanent changes. 15 minutes presentation + Q&A.

8-8:30pm — Ballard Neighborhood Greenways
Bryant Mason from  Ballard-Fremont Neighborhood Greenways will provide background on the history of their group with a focus on recent successes and future plans for improving safety and access in the Ballard area for pedestrians and cyclists. Seattle Neighborhood Greenways has an extensive coalition of neighborhood-based, volunteer-led chapters throughout the city, empowering communities to reclaim Seattle’s streets so that they are more welcoming for people of all kinds to walk, bike and safely get around town. 15 minutes presentation + Q&A.

Please join us! And help spread the word to other community members. Feel free to send questions in advance to info@ballarddistrict.org.
