We are proposing zoning changes within the Lake City hub urban village and commercial areas along Lake City Way from NE 95th Street to NE 145th Street that will help create a more pedestrian oriented neighborhood as property redevelops. These proposed changes have been submitted to City Council, where the legislation will be reviewed this summer.
More about developing a Shared Vision for Lake City
Lake City is a neighborhood that is diverse and energetic, facing its own real challenges. Residents talk about walkability, public safety, access to recreation, and neighborhood character as important priorities. Bisected by a state highway, the neighborhood has struggled to support local, walkable businesses and services, and to create a community sense of place. Residents hope to see growth and investment, but they also worry about displacing current residents and businesses.
