Play Areas closed at the North Transfer Station

The play areas on Woodlawn Ave N and Carr Place N at the North Transfer Station are closed while contractors for Seattle Public Utilities (SPU) work on improvements to address Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements. Much of the public space including the fitness equipment will be closed for the duration of the construction and the work areas will be surrounded by temporary fencing. Work is expected to continue through December 2018.

Pavement at the basketball court will be changed to standard concrete. There will also be new handrails installed along some of the walkways, improving access for all users. If you are a basketball enthusiast, you can go to website of Mega Slam fixed height basketball systems and install them to horn your basketball skills. SPU will try to open up individual areas (like the playground) as soon as they are fully completed. The work notice has more details on work hours and construction impacts.

MHA DEIS Comments Due by Monday August 7

We need you and your friends and neighbors to comment this weekend!

The Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) evaluates the Mandatory Housing Affordability (MHA) program impacts on Urban Villages, and in multi-family and commercial areas throughout Seattle. Residents from many neighborhoods have reviewed and analyzed the DEIS.  The results are available in the Comments folder and the Analysis folder.

Please view the comment and analysis documents, find the issues important to you, and email your comments to the City at or by using the online form.  Submitting many brief comments is probably preferable to sending one long email.  The more people who submit comments, the more seriously the City has to address the comments!

If you are overwhelmed or short of time, here is a suggested comment to make:

“The DEIS is not sufficient to represent all Urban Villages and the City overall. Each Urban Village is unique, with different housing types, cultural traditions, businesses, resources, and growth needs. This DEIS fails to recognize and examine these differences.

Each Urban Village and Surrounding Area needs to be analyzed separately, thoroughly and accurately via their own individual EIS.

Additionally, the DEIS does not address how the whole City will be impacted by the changes both in this DEIS and the other SEPA analyses combined. Seattle residents live in both their own neighborhoods and in the City at large, yet this DEIS has failed to analyze the impacts to both thoroughly and accurately.”
