Community Parking Program
Updated August 24, 2010
Meeting notice: SDOT staff will be attending the September 14, 2010 Junction Neighborhood Organization (JuNO) meeting to check-in on parking conditions since we installed new signs earlier this year. The meeting will begin at 6:30PM at Ginomai (4401 42 nd Ave SW on the corner of Genesee).
SDOT’s Community Parking Program comprehensively studied parking in the West Seattle Junction (WSJ) in 2009. After a parking study was conducted in May 2009, staff worked with neighborhood stakeholders to review study findings and prepare a final parking plan. New time limit signs were installed in early 2010. At that time, SDOT committed to checking in with the community in the fall of 2010. Community members received a mailed version of the final plan, which can be viewed here.
Highlights of and the parking study data are available here . You can also view the entire parking study report here . Maps of how full parking is on a weekday at 5am, 10am, 12pm and 2pm are available below. If you have questions on the parking project, feel free to contact us at the number or email below.
Transit Improvements Coming to West Seattle
The City of Seattle and King County Metro Transit are working together to create transit improvements for West Seattle. Metro's RapidRide bus rapid transit is scheduled to begin service in 2011. RapidRide is designed to connect communities and keep people moving quickly throughout the day in the heavily used transit corridor. These transit improvements are made possible by the Bridging the Gap and Metro's "Transit Now" voter-approved funding measures.
