Pike/Pine Neighborhood Input Sought on Parking Proposal

SEATTLE - The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) is interested in hearing from Pike/Pine residents and businesses about their parking needs, especially from two-wheeled users like bicyclists, scooter riders, and motorcyclists.

After offering an initial proposal last fall, SDOT has released a revised plan that includes more residential parking, paid parking ranging from two to ten hours, free time limited parking, and opportunities to add motorcycle/scooter and on-street bike parking.

SDOT would especially like to hear from two-wheeled users about high-demand areas where parking would support access to neighborhood businesses and amenities. As the department is in the final stages of completing its comprehensive effort, now is a critical time for residents and business to share their opinions. Suggestions can be made until April 17 and can be sent to project manager Allison Schwartz via e-mail at or by phone at (206) 684-8186.

Through its Community Parking Program, SDOT has spent the past year working with Pike/Pine community groups, residents and businesses to improve on-street parking. The revised plan and other project information are available online at Changes to parking will occur later this summer.

The Seattle Department of Transportation builds, maintains and operates Seattle's $12 billion transportation infrastructure. To further Mayor Nickels’ goal to get Seattle moving, the department manages short- and long-term investments in streets, bridges, pavement and trees, that better connect the city with the region.
