North Transfer Station public meeting set for July 9
Meeting will feature presentation on station design process
SEATTLE — Seattle Public Utilities (SPU) will host a public meeting on the design progress for the new North Transfer Station , Tuesday, July 9 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at Lake Washington Rowing Club, 910 N Northlake Way. Attendees can learn about the current station design, and the plan for open space and community amenities.
Built in the mid-1960s, the existing station, located at 1350 North 34th St., is prone to equipment breakdowns, does not control odors or noise well, and does not provide adequate space for current or future recycling and solid waste transfer operations.
SPU began planning to rebuild the station in 2007 with the formation of a stakeholder advisory committee to provide detailed input on design of the new station. The committee’s work culminated in June 2011 with a consensus recommendation to SPU for the conceptual design. SPU Director Ray Hoffman accepted the recommendations and agreed to implement them into the facility design. In 2011, a group of neighborhood residents was formed to ensure the design of the new facility reflected community values in the use of open space.
