Will The Triangle’s transition from present to future include rezoning – buildings on its west side up to 85 feet, business areas in its central area rezoned to “neighborhood commercial”? The city’s proposals are about to get their first formal City Council review. The Committee on the Built Environment, chaired by Councilmember Sally Clark, meets at 9:30 am Wednesday; the agenda includes links to the documents they’ll review. (The second one is a briefing, featuring a page with some of what The Triangle’s known for – including, as the document labels it next to a photo, the “Infamous ‘Hole’.”) The meeting begins with a public-comment period, if you have anything to tell the committee about The Triangle (or other issues it’s considering).
P.S. Speaking of public comments – DPD is still taking your comments on the proposed Triangle plans/changes till August 4th. And documentation is now available on whether they would have environmental effects – the links (look for SEPA) are on the right side of the city’s Triangle-planning page.
