Community Partnerships

Ballard Partnership for Smart Growth's Urban Design and Transportation (UDaT) Committee is working with us as an advisory committee for the Ballard Urban Design Framework. They provide consistent review and advice on the direction of this project and its products. The advisory committee meets on the first Thursday of each month from 4 to 5:30 p.m. at the Ballard Landmark multi-purpose room (5433 Leary Avenue NW). You may attend the meetings as an observer and there is a comment period at the end of each meeting. Find the latest UDaT meeting notes and documents on our Project Documents page.
