‘Pedestrian retail area’ zoning changes? Here’s what the city heard

(Click image to see full-size citywide map of zones identified by the city)
Earlier this year, almost every community council in West Seattle (among others citywide) got a visit from Aly Pennucci, a Department of Planning and Development staffer working on potential zoning changes for “Pedestrian Retail Areas – which don’t necessarily align with what you might think of as neighborhood business districts. She brought along “preliminary recommendations” for each of the areas the city had pre-defined. At the same time, DPD put up an online survey that anyone could answer, and has just published the 902 replies it received, co-mingled instead of broken out by respondents’ neighborhoods, but if you scroll ahead to the second half, you’ll find the often-detailed replies to open questions such as “should other uses be allowed in pedestrian retail zones?”

This is all supposed to result in zoning changes to be proposed to the City Council by late summer. Something to add? aly.pennucci@seattle.gov
