Right now, Please! Add to your calendars: Tuesday, July 26 (6:30 p.m.) at the Montlake Community Center for a Community Meeting about the Montlake Business District Development Project. Montlake Community Club leaders will introduce our KPG consultants to explain the project. They’ll answer your questions, and hear and record your ideas on changes you’d like to see in the Middle of Montlake—the Center of the Universe. Come early to the Tudor Building at the Community Center (1618 E. Calhoun) so you can enjoy the music of Montlake’s own Mother Pluckers Ukulele Band. Then join your neighbors in learning and contributing ideas to this development project.
With all that’s happening in and around Montlake these days, we need to be an active influence on what gets done to our community. This one-year planning project, funded by a grant from the Seattle Department of Neighborhoods, brings us the help of KPG consultants, Paul Fuesel and Liz Gibson. They offer skills, knowledge, and years of experience in urban design, landscape architecture, public involvement and town visioning. (Visit the KPG website, kpg.com, for a look at some of their terrific local projects.)
Montlake’s Business District Development planning can have a significant effect on the upcoming SDOT Phase 3 reconstruction of 24th Ave. E. The project also may help in coordination of the Seattle Neighborhoods Greenways project as well as current and upcoming phases of WSDOT 520 Bridge construction Those are all reasons why we need to get together to clarify opportunities and contribute our ideas to Montlake’s Business District Development Project. WE neighbors have a role to play. Come and join us at the All Montlake Community Meeting, Tuesday, July 26, 6:30 p.m., Tudor Building, Montlake Community Center, 1618 E. Calhoun St.
Your Montlake Community Club Board, working for you.
