More lot splitting in Ballard

The Department of Land Use and Development has released an update for proposal applications. Two Ballard properties in Ballard have been approved: 2441 NW 63rd Street and 3420 NW Market Street.

To subdivide is to parcel out a property into more than one, and in the last year Ballard has seen a flux in applicants and approvals.

The approved application for 2441 NW 63rd Street (is zoned LR1) proposes to short-subdivide one parcel into two lots with these measurement: 2,549 sq. ft. and 2,449 sq. ft. The existing structures on the property are to be demolished.

The approved application for the 3420 NW Market Street, is for a short subdivision to create two unit lots with the purpose of allowing sale or lease of the unit lots. Development standards will be applied to the original parcel and not to each of the new unit lots.

Appeals for these decisions must be received by the hearing Examiner no later than Dec. 30. For the complete bulletin go to
