SLU Neighborhood Plan Priorities Completed - Open House
South Lake Union has undergone significant changes in the nine years since the neighborhood plan was adopted in 1998. Key neighborhood plan recommendations, such as improvements to Cascade Playground and Lake Union Park, are being implemented. New ideas, such as the South Lake Union streetcar, are becoming a reality. Perhaps most notably, the neighborhood has seen significant residential and non-residential development, changing expectations about the future of the neighborhood.
The neighborhood plan update recognizes the work of the South Lake Union neighborhood in developing the original South Lake Union neighborhood plan, but an update is required to reflect the changing development environment. The plan update recognizes other recent planning efforts and incorporates the key proposals of those efforts without repeating the work. Finally, the plan update includes new ideas that have come from South Lake Union community members, other interested citizens, and provides additional detail to a number of concepts that were proposed in the original plan.
Join community organizations and City departments on October 29th from 4 – 8 p.m., for an unveiling celebration of the plan update, and learn about some of the exciting projects already underway and next steps to implement it. The open house will be at the South Lake Union Armory (Naval Reserve Building at Lake Union Park, 860 Terry Ave. N.)
