SDOT Drops Proposal for RPZ Around Green Lake Business District


April 2016 Public Hearing Feedback for Revised RPZ Proposal

The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) has dropped a proposal to create a restricted parking zone (RPZ) around the Green Lake business district. The idea for the Green Lake RPZ originated with the Green Lake Community Council, which in July 2014 asked SDOT to study its feasibility. In response, SDOT created a draft RPZ proposal and used feedback from a fall 2015 online survey to refine the plan further before presenting it at a public meeting at Green Lake in April 2016 for a final decision. People gave the revised RPZ plan markedly worse reviews than the original proposal it was meant to improve upon.
