East Ballard Happenings

A lot has been going on in East Ballard, and our friends at EBCA want you to be involved, especially in planning for Ballard’s newest park along 14th Avenue NW between NW 59th Street and NW 61st Street. Here’s how you can participate:

  • Attend the March 7 community meeting, at which “the Salmon Ladder concept for the park has been selected for further study.” It’s the second of two community input meetings.
  • Attend the March 15 EBCA Steering Committee meeting. Details at the EBCA blog.
  • Simply read up on East Ballard happenings at the EBCA blog

Currently, 14th Avenue NW between NW Market Street and NW 65th is designated a collector arterial with a posted speed limit of 30 miles per hour. The current speed limit affects several aspects of the park design including safety, cost, and available parking. The survey company found that the surrounding study area contains approximately 400 available spaces at most times. EBCA says that more details and opportunities for discussion will likely be provided at the March 7 meeting.
