The Friends of Smith Cove Park are asking for the public’s input on how to utilize Magnolia’s beachfront park that will take shape as early as next year.

  • Magnolia tree sitter saves ‘extraordinary’ pine — kind of
    He’d tried sending emails to Seattle City Light, the Urban Forestry department and even a City Councilmember’s office, but Jim Davis still wasn’t certain the tree sitting at 29th Avenue West and West Tilden Street would make it through the weekend. 
  • Forty homeowners in the Greater Seattle area are inviting the public into their new, remodeled or energy-retrofitted homes this weekend for the fifth-annual Northwest Green Home Tour. 
  • Because of expanded transit opportunities, Metro Transit will also adjust bus routes. So far, it has come up with proposals and alternatives that it is confident  will be advantageous for Queen Anne and other neighborhoods. 
  • Community leaders expect limited impact from Expedia’s move to Interbay
    Ellen Monrad remembers a former mayor calling Queen Anne a big rock in the middle of the city — a well-to-do neighborhood in no need of city services or deserving of much attention from the city at-large.  
  • The question is simple: What do Magnolia residents want from Magnolia Village? The answer is a bit much more complex.

  • The Seattle Department of Transportation has had three open houses since introducing the Move Seattle proposal across the city. Over the next three weeks, SDOT will host an additional round of opportunities for the public to learn about the proposal and provide feedback. 
  • Roy Street will fully close between Dexter and Eighth avenues North for duct bank work starting Monday, April 13, through Friday, April 17. 
  • Public opinion to shape Smith Cove Park

  • In response to community members, King County and the City of Seattle will step up parking enforcement at Discovery Park beginning Monday, April 6, to help prevent vandalism and ensure emergency access.  
  • King County’s contractor for the Fremont siphon replacement project continues work to prepare the project sites. 
  • Seattle City Councilmember Tom Rasmussen is hosting a public meeting on Wednesday, April 8, to gather community input about a proposal to establish a Neighborhood Conservation District (NCD) program
  • In 2016, Sound Transit’s University Link light rail extension will connect the University District with Capitol Hill, Downtown Seattle, Rainier Valley and Sea-Tac International Airport. Both Metro Transit and Sound Transit are looking for ways to make the new light rail service sync most efficiently with the existing bus system.

     
     
  • The Magnolia/Queen Anne District Council has selected the application for the raised crosswalk at 32nd Avenue West and West Ray Street (outside Catharine Blaine K-8 School) as its top choice for passing forward to the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) for detailed feasibility and cost analysis.
