Rainier Beach Urban Framework. This project presents an inspiring vision that creates a dense, pedestrian-friendly hub around a transit station in a historically auto-centric area. I appreciate the thoughtfulness of this urban design effort in its embodiment of the neighborhood’s desire to strengthen their community identity. Opportunities to vitalize our city by creating contextually-sensitive, pedestrian environments exist throughout Seattle–I find that very exciting.
