As stated here two weeks ago, SDOT says Alki Point “healthy street” is permanent – Alki Avenue SW west of 63rd SW and Beach Drive SW north of 63rd SW. The city says it will become a neighborhood greenway and the next step is to discuss its design with the community. So they have planned two events for this – an in-person open house from 6:30-7:45 p.m. on Wednesday, November 9 at Alki baths (2701 Alki SW), and an online open house from noon to 1 p.m. on Tuesday, November 15 (no link yet). Either way, SDOT says it’ll show off the “early design” concept, answer questions, and take feedback. (Here’s how last year’s survey turned out.) According to a project update coming out today, possible “traffic-calming” features include a raised crosswalk and roundabout. -point. If you can’t make it to either event, they will be taking email/phone feedback until December 9 – [email protected] Where 206-727-3565. The project was also mentioned recently by the Alki Community Council as an item on the agenda for their next meeting (7 p.m. on Thursday, November 17).
