More houses going away in Fremont–see photo above–at 4467 and 4471 Whitman Ave N., to be replaced by 8 townhouses fronting on N 45th. Both were built in 1911 according to property records. Green Canopy, developer, will provide 6 parking spaces though none are required, and has met with neighbors about the planned construction.
Parklets: Here’s more about Seattle’s moving from a pilot program to a full rollout of Parklets and Streateries. These privately funded public spaces will be permitted on a yearly basis by the city; Department of Neighborhoods grants can be used as part of the funding. They are temporary additions, not permanently attached to the street or the curb. One quite local example is the parklet outside Molly Moon on N 45th in Wallingford. Applications are now being accepted. More here: http://www.seattle.gov/transportation/parklets.htm
Crosswalks: On Feb. 23, City Traffic Engineer Dhongho Chang updated FNC on the crosswalk project at N 43rd and Fremont Avenue North. Construction is scheduled to start April 25 and will take about a week. He supplied the drawing for the project, attached here.SDOT re 43rd & Fremont N crosswalk 2-23-15
