Good things come to those who wait!
Eight years of community outreach, organizing, and planning have led us to tonight’s Melrose Promenade Open House, hosted by our partners at the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT), and made possible by a $3 million grant to design and build the Melrose Promenade.
In 2016, the Puget Sound Regional Council (PSRC) awarded the federal grant to SDOT. SDOT’s formal community outreach begins tonight and will inform the design of about a mile’s worth of improvements along Melrose and Minor Avenues. SDOT expects construction to begin by 2020.
Please join us at tonight’s open house, which will be from 5:30 to 7 at Melrose Market Studios at 1532 Minor Avenue. This will be a great opportunity to share your insights and ideas for how to build a safer, more enjoyable Melrose Promenade.
