In addition, we’ll get a chance to review some preliminary design ideas for various aspects of the Promenade, and suggest our own ideas for things we’d like to see included.
Hope you can join us! Visit our Facebook event page.
Check out these photos from our first community visioning meeting in January:
Check out this helpful site plan that our friends at the Berger Partnership created. This helps give a sense for the different segments within the Melrose Promenade, including the “Greenway”, the “Overlook”, and the “Active-Urban” areas.
Also, if you’re interested in seeing many of the ideas that were generated at the first community visioning meeting, check out these question boards, which include notes taken at the meeting.
Our consultants will be giving a full run-down of feedback received at the upcoming Melrose Promenade Advisory Committee on Wednesday, Feb. 13, at 6pm at the Capitol Hill Library.
Thanks to everyone – our engaged neighbors, our consultants, our advisory committee and partner organizations, and our host Broadcast Coffee – for contributing to an outstanding kickoff for our community visioning process. About 35 of us participated in this positive, forward-looking discussion for how we can build a better Promenade together.
A more detailed recap of the event, as well as photos, are soon to come, but in the meantime, please complete the following Survey Monkey poll to share your ideas for the Melrose Promenade (for both those who could and those who couldn’t attend in person).
We are kicking off our series of three community visioning meetings tonight at 6pm at Broadcast Coffee (1623 Bellevue Ave.) Tonight’s session will be led by our fabulous team of consultants: the Berger Partnership, Weinstein | AU, and Schemata Workshop. And, we will be joined by guests from the City of Seattle.
We will be looking at various sections of our future Promenade, identifying our hopes, dreams, and desires for what we hope Melrose will one day become.
Spread the word: Tell your friends and neighbors! Looking forward to seeing you all there!
Want to help create the vision for transforming Melrose Avenue into the Melrose Promenade? NOW is the time to get involved! Our first community visioning meeting will be Thurs., Jan 24, at 6pm at Broadcast Coffee (1623 Bellevue Ave., just south of E. Pine St.)
Any and all community members are encouraged to participate in this meeting! The team of the Berger Partnership, Weinstein | AU, and Schemata Workshop, along with the Melrose Promenade Advisory Committee, will lead a series of activities to help us determine just how we want the Promenade to look.
This will be the first of three community visioning meetings that will eventually lead to a report outlining a detailed proposal for the Melrose Promenade.

Join us for our next Melrose Promenade Advisory Committee meeting!
We are officially kicking off our community visioning process by meeting with our consultants, the team of the Berger Partnership, Weinstein AU, and Schemata Workshop this Wednesday, December 12.
At 5pm, we will meet in front of Bauhaus at Melrose and Pine and proceed to walk the length of the Promenade looking for inspiration. And, at 6pm will be our regular advisory committee meeting at the Capitol Hill Library (425 Harvard Avenue East).
What do you think the future Melrose Promenade might look like?
We are grateful to our friends at GGLO for producing these renderings, which are meant to get the conversation started.
For instance, how would we like to see Bellevue Place Park used in the future? Would we like to see a p-patch under the trees along the bicycle trail? Would we like to have a plaza at the Denny Way intersection, as was illustrated in one of the images?
Let us know your thoughts!
