There is an upcoming public meeting on the Sand Point Way Corridor Study being done by SDOT.
The meeting with be on Wednesday, Jan 25, at 7 P.M. in the Officers Club in Building 30 in Magnuson Park.
A neighbor who lives north of Magnuson Park has been actively advocating for improvements to the pedestrian access at the north end of Magnuson Park. SDOT has responded and over the last six or more months has been meeting with a stakeholder group to consider possible changes to the Sand Point Way corridor to improve safety and access for everyone who uses Sand Point Way, especially where it runs along Magnuson Park. They have engaged 2 sets of consultants who have been studying the area, traffic, landscape, etc, and who have presented to the stakeholder groups and considered many suggestions and concerns.
Overall the stakeholder group has been very impressed with these preliminary plans and thinks this plan will have many positive benefits.
Neighbors are encouraged to come to the meeting in January to learn more about the preliminary plans and to add their own input.
