At last night’s Seattle Transit Master Plan Open House at Aljoya Thornton Place, Tony Mazzella with the Seattle Department of Transportation kicked off the meeting by praising the venue, which is located just east of the Northgate Transit Center at 450 N.E. 100th St.
“This is a sterling example of what can be done when we put uses like retail and residential next to good-quality transit,” he said during the presentation portion of the open house.
Following the presentation, attendees were encouraged to take a close look at the posters detailing the Transit Master Plan, which takes us decades into the future of the city’s transit, and to ask plenty of questions.
Including new input with the information collected so far, SDOT plans to ask the Seattle City Council to approve the Transit Master Plan in early 2012.
