Studio KPG continues to work with the Montlake Community Club on the business development project (if you’ve missed what this is about, click here). Studio KPG has completed their analysis of the comments from the community meeting held at the Community Center on July 26. There was overwhelming approval for moving forward with the changes proposed for the business district which included adopting a road diet (fewer traffic lanes), adding street parking and more signage and lighting to make the area safer for pedestrians, and making our business district a destination for visitors to the neighborhood as well as Montlakers.
The watercolor below from Studio KPG shows how the business district would look once the changes are made.
Montlakers can look forward to another meeting in November for the community’s input on the updated plans.
The MCC will also be forming a public arts committee to organize the addition of public art in our business district. The committee will establish guidelines and location sites and manage the acquisition process. Keep reading the Montlake Flyer for updates on these exciting changes for our neighborhood.
