Shop by Bike

The Shop by Bike Project, supported by a City of Seattle CarSmart Communities Challenge Grant, is a promotion of the concept of shopping by bike, as well as an evaluation of bicycle access and bicycle facilities at 72 of Seattle's supermarkets. Furthermore, recommendations will be sent to the stores regarding how their bicycle facilities could be improved. Emily Allen and Chris King, who are managing this project, will share the results of their study with the board. This is an excellent opportunity to begin a discussion of how bicycle parking requirements in the city's land-use code should be updated.

University Area Transportation Study

The City's Strategic Planning Office (SPO) is conducting the University Area Transportation Study to identify transportation problems and improvements within the University area, including Montlake, University Heights and Ravenna. The study area stretches from I-5 to 35th Ave NE and from NE 65th St. to the Ship Canal including the Montlake interchange on SR-520. Staff and consultants are developing numerous potential transportation improvements for bicycling, walking, transit, carpool and roadway facilities. Mary Catherine Snyder, a transportation planner in SPO, will present the potential bicycle improvements currently being evaluated.

The study area is bounded by NW Market Street, Leary Way NW, Shilshole Avenue NW/NW 46th Street, and Ballard Avenue NW between 3rd Avenue NW and the Hiram Chittenden Locks. Eric Tweit, the Project Manager, will present preliminary recommendations and would appreciate the board's feedback.
