It’s been over a decade since community members worked together to draft the 1999 neighborhood plan for Broadview, Bitter Lake, and Haller Lake, the blueprint for change through the year 2020.
In 2010, the Mayor and City Council identified Broadview-Bitter Lake-Haller Lake as one of two neighborhoods to undergo a neighborhood plan update. These communities had experienced significant change—including the opening of a newly expanded library, open space investments, new apartment developments, improvements to promote better drainage, and new bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure. However, community members noted that in other ways the area hadn’t changed enough. The 2011 neighborhood plan update assessed the strengths or of the original plan, affirmed goals that were still relevant, and identified new goals where appropriate. This set the stage for community members to work with the City to create a shared work plan that achieves the community’s vision.
Who is Doing this Important Work?
Partnerships play a significant role in Neighborhood Plan Updates.
Neighborhood stakeholders and community enthusiasts, you are experts on how you use your neighborhood and what you hope it can become. During the plan update process there were several opportunities for residents, business owners, students, community organizations, etc. to share their expertise, their voice and their vision for Broadview-Bitter Lake-Haller Lake. Their time and input is highly valued and directly shaped the direction of the Neighborhood Plan Update.
The Broadview-Bitter Lake-Haller Lake Neighborhood Advisory Committee(NAC) advised the City on key elements of the neighborhood plan, selected a consultant to address the neighborhood’s priority concern, reviewed community input, and helped form recommendations that considered all community interests.
City staff from the Department of Planning and Development and the Department of Neighborhoods managed the process for the City and coordinated with a full range of departments and our elected officials.
Mayor McGinn and the Seattle City Council continue to balance specific neighborhood needs and goals with citywide goals in order for Seattle to grow in ways that improve its neighborhoods while meeting the City’s commitments under the State’s Growth Management Act.
