North Transfer Station Agreements

One of the land use issues that the Wallingford Community Council is currently working on is the redesign of the North Transfer Station. Several members of the board have spent countless hours working on this issue, working with Seattle Public Utilities (SPU)  to work out an agreement that serves that needs of the City while providing the neighborhood amenities that keep Wallingford a great place to live. Read more on the agreement here:

After more review and hours of discussion, here are the current (1/25/12) documents about the transfer station:

Once again many thanks to those on the council who spent HUNDREDS of hours on this issue, and have negotiated agreements with SPU that will have a positive impact on the neighborhood!
