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 PikePineParking@seattle.gov 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 www.seattle.gov/transportation/parking/cp_pikepine.htm. 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.
