Here are the Seattle OPCD and SDCI Land Use notices in the last three weeks for communities from 18th Ave. to Lake Washington and E Union St. to SR-520.
Arboretum Waterfront Trail Renovation
Seattle Parks and Recreation is proposing to reconstruct the existing Waterfront Trail that connects the Washington Park Arboretum across Foster and Marsh Islands to East Montlake Park. The upland section of the trail across Foster and Marsh Island becomes inundated when the lake level is raised. Floating segments of the trail are in disrepair and some sections are sinking. None of the existing trail meets current accessibility standards outlined in the Americans with Disabilities Act. The new trail will be constructed as a boardwalk structure, supported by pin piles on land and floating over Union Bay/Lake Washington and reconstructed in the same location as the existing trail.
Short Term Rental Legislation
The City of Seattle is proposing to amend the Land Use Code and the Licensing Code in order to define and add land use and licensing standards for short-term rental uses and modify the definition and land use standards for bed and breakfast uses.
City of Seattle staff will have maps and other information regarding proposed zoning changes to create more affordable housing. This will be focused on central-ish urban villages, but all are welcome to bring their questions.
