Ballard Action Agenda

Ballard Partnership for Smart Growth

The Ballard Partnership for Smart Growth is a collaborative effort of merchants, property owners, service providers, Swedish Ballard Medical Center, marine-industrial leaders, restaurant/nightlife representatives, residents, and the Ballard Chamber of Commerce. The Partnership is part of a multi-year strategic initiative to encourage investment and build sustainable partnerships in Ballard. Four working groups have been established to identify issues and craft potential solutions within each of the following key areas:

  1. Urban Design & Transportation
  2. Business & Economic Development
  3. Clean/Healthy/Safe
  4. Marketing & Promotions.
