What we are doing…

HISTORIC PRESERVATION

Poster-Trio

 

  • Working to preserve the Wayne and Franklin apartments as historic buildings for use as work/live spaces, as housing, or as independent, local businesses
  • Updating the City’s inventory of Belltown’s historic, iconic and character buildings
  • Developing a Belltown Historic Preservation Plan and Nominating Priority Buildings and Sites as City Landmarks
  • Nominating a portion of Belltown as a City Landmark to help tell the continuing story of the Duwamish Tribe and other indigenous people

 COMMUNITY AND
ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT

We are working with the city, landowners, businesses and the community to

  • Inventory and map Belltown’s community assets and public and private realms
  • Maintain portions of 2nd Ave between Wall and Lenora as the heart of the Belltown and designate as an Arts and Culture district
  • Establish an Economic Development Management System that encourages development of great places to live, learn, work and play
  • Create the Belltown Underground — where new developments build underground spaces for people, not parking.  “BARS NOT CARS!”
  • Create a pedestrian alleyway (a “woonerf“)  with sitting and bar/restaurant/business access in the alley that runs from Mama’s to the Crocodile

  • Initiate a formal, comprehensive neighborhood planning effort with the City of Seattle that allows Belltown residents, business owners, land owners to work together to shape a future Belltown that will still be Belltown…only better!
