Residents of the Cully neighborhood won’t have to go far to comment on the Cully Main Street and Local Street Plans project on May 22. The Planning and Sustainability Commission (PSC) is holding a public hearing on the Proposed Cully Main Street and Local Street Plans Implementation Report in heart of the Cully neighborhood at Rigler School to get feedback directly from the community.
Cully Main Street and Local Street Plans Project
PSC Public Hearing
Tuesday, May 22, 2012 @ 6 p.m.
Rigler School Auditorium
5401 NE Prescott Street
The recommendations in the implementation report include select zoning changes along Cully Boulevard and Killingsworth Street area to allow more commercial, residential, and mixed-use and employment uses in the area. The report also includes a local street plan for the Cully neighborhood to increase street connectivity, develop new designs and funding options for implementing local street improvements, as well as prioritizing Cully community street improvements.
After the hearing, the PSC can make recommendations that may revise the report, which will be forwarded to City Council for final action at a public hearing in July 2012.
Over the past year, the Bureau of Planning and Sustainability and Bureau of Transportation have been working with Cully residents, property owners, bike and pedestrian advocates, and the business and the community to collect and analyze data, and hear public opinion on the Cully Main Street and Local Street Plans project. Project staff subsequently developed the implementation report to respond to the community’s desire for a neighborhood-serving main street and an improved street system.
