That's what they intend to figure out as the city of Seattle's Department of Planning and Development (DPD) is beginning a study to develop a clear and coherent land use vision for the Elliot Avenue/15th Avenue corridor that runs through Ballard and Interbay.
The study will "develop a vision for the lands close to this heavily travelled, multi-functional route" and has stated goals to address the mix of land use, the potential for transit developments and opportunities for improved public realm and placemaking. Special groups will be meeting to discuss the potential and public hearings/focus groups are planned for 2013 as well.
