Downtown Alley Code Amendment: It’s really elementary my dear Watson.

We’ve had it with broken promises at all levels of city government. This Alley Code Amendment is not an unreasonable request. It’s something that is long overdue in order to have functional design of loading, waste, and delivery facilities in downtown Seattle.

For District 7 Candidates, you have no excuse for “waffling” on the issue unless you really don’t support us and don’t have the guts to say so.

Mayor or Monarch?

I’m sure it’s easy to forget that you are not a Monarch, but a public servant elected for a four-year term. And if you want another term, we'd suggest you start acting like a public servant and become responsive, not defiant, in response to citizens’ legitimate concerns.

Glimmer Of Hope For First Light Project

Finally, SDCI is requesting the First Light Applicant [2000 3rd Ave.] to address most of what we’ve been asking for years. The Correction Notice states in part “Please also indicate the expected frequency of commercial deliveries and of residential move-ins/move-outs. As the project will provide three loading bays, please provide turning movement diagrams demonstrating that each bay can be accessed when other bays are occupied. Please also indicate whether and to what extent trucks using the loading bays will extend into the alley when ramps or lift gates are deployed….

The Downtown Alley Cat Is On The Prowl: Episode 12

I went over to the alley behind Escala to take a look at a big truck sticking out of their loading dock and blocking all alley traffic. And sure enough, a picture of this truck belongs right at the top of any list showing why a downtown alley code amendment is absolutely necessary here in Seattle; and why none of these new pending high-rise projects downtown should be approved without demonstrating that large trucks such as this one will fit completely in their loading berth(s) and not extend out into the alley right-of-way.
