Ballard District Council on May 8: Ballard-Interbay Land Use study; Greenways; and SDOT improvements

On May 8, Ballard District Council will be holding their monthly meeting at 7 p.m. in the Ballard Branch Library.

This month's agenda includes the Ballard to Interbay Land Use Corridor Study, which could possibly (but not necessarily) result in changes to the allowed use of the land; Ballard Greenways, which are set to begin construction soon; and possible road improvements in Ballard by the Seattle Department of Transportation.

As usual, I will be there to chitchat with the locals. So why not join us?
