HERBOLD: Highland Park home zone survey
District 1 City Councilmember Lisa Herbold shared this announcement in her newsletter to constituents Jan. 29.
As part of the Reconnect West Seattle program to address the impacts on neighborhoods from the closure of the West Seattle Bridge, SDOT initiated work on the Home Zone program in Highland Park, South Park, and Georgetown. A Home Zone involves the neighborhood working together to prioritize improvements that calm traffic and improve pedestrian mobility and neighborhood livability.
SDOT has released a survey on the Highland Park Home Zone, showing the current status of the proposal. The survey is open through February 15. Below are links to the survey in English, Spanish, Korean and Vietnamese. To request the survey in other languages, contact SDOT at WestSeattleBridge@seattle.gov or 206-400-7511.
The survey links to locations where SDOT is proposing, for example, speed humps, curb bulbs, crosswalks, flashing beacons, all-way stops, signal upgrades', and other improvements.
Next steps include reviewing survey results and presenting a final home zone plan to the community, and implementing priority projects during 2021, and working with neighbors on construction plans.
The survey includes maps of proposals in different areas in the neighborhood; here’s one example.
Participation in the Home Zone program is one of the ten prioritized projects in the Roxhill, Highland Park, Riverview and South Delridge neighborhoods as part of the Reconnect West Seattle program.
