Broadview – Bitter Lake – Haller Lake Neighborhood Plan Update

From Northwest News Bits

PlanThank you for your past participation in the Broadview – Bitter Lake – Haller Lake Neighborhood Plan Update.

 In response to the community’s neighborhood plan, Seattle’s Office of Planning and Community Development has drafted zoning changes to promote development of a neighborhood business district on Linden Ave. N.

The changes will affect the east side of Linden Ave. N between N 130th St. & N 145th St., and N 130th St. between Linden Ave. N and Aurora Ave. N.  They include the following:

  • Rezone the east side of Linden Ave. N to Commercial 1 to reduce the intensity of commercial uses and increase compatibility with the growing residential neighborhood.
  • Allow street level residences on Linden Ave. N north of N 135th
  • Require street-level businesses on the east side of Linden Ave. N between N 135th and N 130th streets to encourage development of a neighborhood shopping district.
  • Require portions of new buildings over 45 feet high to set back 10 feet from the street edge to reduce bulk.
  • New buildings on and N 130th between Linden Ave. N and Aurora Ave. N. will need to create street fronts that support a better walking environment.
  • There are no height increases proposed as part of this legislation.
