What is this study?
The Sound Transit Judkins Park light rail station is set to open by 2023. Residential buildings are popping up, potential zoning updates through the Housing, Affordability, and Livability Agenda (HALA) are being discussed, and street and circulation improvements are being planned in the Judkins Park and North Rainier neighborhoods. The City of Seattle wants you to help guide how your community looks, feels, and functions over time so that the station area is accessible, livable, and equitable for all.
The Office of Planning and Community Development (OPCD) is studying land use regulations to support a vibrant and livable neighborhood near the light rail station, the economic vitality of existing and future businesses, and affordable housing opportunities.
The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) is undertaking the Judkins Park Station Access Study to evaluate and propose street and path improvements around the future light rail station with community input and feedback. This study will look at how residents, workers, and customers—whether traveling by foot, bicycle, or vehicle—can safely and comfortably:
1. Get to and from the light rail station, and
2. Get around the neighborhood, especially to and from key destinations.
As the neighborhood continues to change, we have an opportunity to work with you to identify neighborhood assets, development opportunities, and transportation projects that will prioritize safety, improve access for all users, and ultimately position Judkins Park projects for future grant opportunities.
We look forward to hearing your ideas through the following questions! Thank you for taking the time to share your perspective and expertise on the Judkins Park area.
