In the News
Following announcement of the plan in November 2016, multiple media outlets and blogs covered the plan:
SDOT is working in the Pike/Pine area of Capitol Hill through the Community Access and Parking Program. The goal of this effort is to work with the neighborhood on overall access and on-street parking management.
SDOT works in 2-3 neighborhoods per year on parking and neighborhood access through the Community Access and Parking Program.
Pike/Pine is a vital and thriving business district that attracts customers and visitors from around the region. At the same time it is also welcoming new residents and new developments that increase the demand for parking, loading, and overall access to the neighborhood.
