Olympic Hills Neighborhood Greenway
Neighborhood greenways are residential streets where signs and pavement markings are used to guide people along the route; and speed and volume management measures discourage cars from avoiding main streets by cutting through on neighborhood streets. These amenities can be especially beneficial for families, children and seniors who might find these routes more comfortable than busier nearby streets. Local access to homes along neighborhood greenways is always preserved and there are usually minimal, if any changes to on-street parking. Visit our neighborhood greenways home page to learn more.
The city is seeking input on where to construct a neighborhood greenway in the Olympic Hills neighborhood with the ultimate goal of creating a network. Initial review of data and visits to the neighborhood suggest 27th Avenue NE might work well. Over the next six months staff will meet with community members to discuss the best route, what type of traffic calming improvements might be useful and develop a design. Improvements may include:
Project design is locally funded by the nine-year voter approved Bridging the Gap Levy.
June 2013: Public Meeting
Fall/Winter 2013: Meetings with community groups and preliminary design
Winter 2014: Final design and 2nd public meeting
