Come to the Open House, Participate in SLU Future
If you're a stakeholder who wants to be involved in how the SLU neighborhood develops and grows, now is your chance to review the possibilities and share your opinions. The South Lake Union Friends and Neighbors (SLUFAN) Community Council Board invites you to attend a public workshop titled "Open House: Urban Form Alternatives" from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., Tuesday, Feb. 12 at the South Lake Union Armory, 860 Terry Ave. N.
"We'd really like to see a good turnout for this event; it's a real opportunity to take part in the exciting future we're building in the neighborhood," said Seve Paget, Chairperson, SLUFAN Board. Paget added that interested parties should go to the SLUFAN website for more information and background about the planning process.
This event gives you a chance to review and comment on the results of a recent design charrette (pronounced shuh-ret), conducted as part of the South Lake Union Urban Form Study that's now underway. A charrette is when a multidisciplinary team (including residents, business owners, the city and design professionals such as architects, engineers, planners and landscape architects) creates a visual plan for an area over the span of several days.
At the charrette held recently, several scenarios for future development of the SLU neighborhood evolved and will be used to help determine future height and density changes. At the open house you'll have a chance to see and learn how these alternatives will be used in the Urban Form Study.
Of course, you can use the new streetcar to get to the meeting.
