As part of the ongoing West Seattle Triangle Planning Project, the city has come up with a draft list of businesses in The Triangle – and is asking for your help in making sure it’s accurate and complete. Take a look at the list here (PDF) – and if you see anything missing, or wrong (for example, we noticed that OK Corral should now be Jones Barbeque), here’s who to e-mail. Meantime, if you happen to be a Triangle business owner, the city now has an online survey they’d like you to take; the city’s point person on the Triangle project, Susan McLain, says, “We are asking business owners to complete a short survey providing information and opinions about business-related issues. The idea for the survey emerged from recent meetings sponsored by the West Seattle Chamber and involving businesses in the Triangle planning area.” If you’re a Triangle business owner, start the survey here. McLain says the results will be out this fall. Tuesday night, she spoke to the Junction Neighborhood Organization meeting – read on for toplines:

Her briefing for JuNO was regarding where the project stands overall, stressing again that many of the potential changes under discussion might not happen for years or even decades, but the focus is to look at the “quality of streetscapes in the area,” working on a “draft street-level concept plan” as well as “land-use issues.” She also said that creating design-review guidelines for The Triangle might be a future project. But for now, she noted that DPD has had some recent staffing cuts, so they’re just trying to plow ahead with what’s already in the works “while we have the dollars.” Visiting JuNO from the Fairmount Community Association immediately south of The Triangle, Sharonn Meeks suggested to McLain that making small actionable decisions would be helpful – such as, what kind of street tree will be used in the area – so that planting projects might be able to move forward. Responding to a question from another attendee, she confirmed that one of the proposed concepts includes the previously suggested idea of Fauntleroy Way as a “tree-lined boulevard” through the area, though that, she said, would not reduce the number of travel lanes. SDOT is still reviewing the streetscape ideas, she noted.
