We evaluated potential zoning changes intended to encourage additional ground-floor commercial space to accommodate more retail for the neighborhood business districts along 35th Ave NE (at 65th, 75th, 85th, and 95th Streets). Our evaluation was in response to the Future of 35th Ave NE plan.
Our potential changes responded to the community’s interest to have more opportunities for retail goods and services in those areas. We considered the following options:
In response to what we heard, we submitted a Future Land Use Map amendment to City Council in order to change three areas from low rise development to neighborhood commercial.
The Mayor’s Housing Affordability and Livability Agenda (HALA) project is currently evaluating potential zoning modifications in line with both the Future of 35th Ave NE plan recommendations and what we proposed as potential options in June 2015. Decisions made during the HALA process may rezone areas along 35th Ave.
This project evaluated recommendations for land use changes presented in the Future of 35th Avenue NE.
