The 14th Ave NW Boulevard project is a culmination of over 9 years of community building by the East Ballard Community Association and the neighbors and businesses of East Ballard.
The intent of the 14th Ave NW Park proposes to convert two or more blocks of 14th Ave NW between NW 59th and 61st from existing roadway and parking median to a linear community park green space, green infrastructure, and incorporate safety improvements for pedestrians, cyclists and vehicles for 2 blocks along the east side of the street. This proposal builds on a Visioning process begun in 2006 (14th Ave NW Visioning Project, Carlson Architects) which seeks context‐appropriate safety improvements and green infrastructure and park‐space from Salmon Bay to NW 65th Street along 14th Ave NW.
- Create a community park and greenspace
- Address environmental concerns by converting existing stormwater treatment from piped conveyance into on‐site biofiltration
- Improve safety in the corridor for all transit users.
The EBCA Steering Committee meets on the 3rd Wednesday of every month from 7:30-9:00 pm. Please contact Dawn Hemminger at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to get involved.
We post periodic updates about the park on the East Ballard Community Association website.
