The Melrose Promenade Advisory Committee is getting ready to hold their first community visioning meeting with the project’s consultant team. The group is meeting Wednesday at 5 p.m. at Bauhaus Coffee at Melrose and Pine.
The project aims to redesign Melrose Ave and the trail through Bellevue Place Park into a more inviting place to walk and bike. Already popular for people biking, it will likely be an even more important bike route connection if and when improvements are made to Pike/Pine and Lakeview Blvd. The group, with the help of Central Seattle Greenways, received a grant for design work on the park and promenade. If you have yet to get involved, this would be a great time to be a part of the conversation that shapes the future of the vastly underutilized space.
Join us for our next Melrose Promenade Advisory Committee meeting!
We are officially kicking off our community visioning process by meeting with our consultants, the team of the Berger Partnership, Weinstein AU, and Schemata Workshop.
At 5pm, we will meet in front of Bauhaus at Melrose and Pine and proceed to walk the length of the Promenade looking for inspiration. And, at 6pm will be our regular advisory committee meeting at the Capitol Hill Library (425 Harvard Avenue East).Over the next several months, our consultants will be working with us to lead a series of public meetings to further develop our vision for all that the Melrose Promenade can one day be, and they will be joining us for the walk and our meeting.In addition, at the meeting we will also be discussing our applications to Opportunity Fund and the Neighborhood Street Fund grant programs. Hope to see you then!
