Lake City Visioning Project Open House

Date and Time:  Saturday, March 30th from 2:30 to 5:30pm
Location:  Lake City Library conference room

The University of Washington students who have been working on the Lake City Visioning Project will be holding and open house to showcase their work to date. The students have been working on design concepts for the Pierre Properties and a "tool kit" to assist our community with urban planning.

In addition, a Landscape Architecture class at the UW is currently in progress. Students from that class will be at the Open House sharing their work as well. They are working on 16 different concepts for specific projects throughout the Lake City area. The  projects are looking at:

Improvements to specific parks, including but not limited to the Lake City Mini Park, Homewood Park, and Little Brook Park.

Right of Way improvements to specific streets to improve safety and usability.

Connecting our parks, trails, nature areas, business district, and other public assets with a unified and well marked trail system. Included would be public art to help create a sense of identity and place, a signage program unique to our neighborhood, interpretive exhibits describing unique features of the Thornton Creek Watershed, etc. 

Everyone is welcome to attend. It is informal, so drop in when you can and stay for as long as you like. This is still an ongoing process and the students are looking for more community feedback and ideas.

You can follow the Visioning Project on their blog.
