ECC public meeting Tuesday: Roanoke St. End, North Gateway Triangle

The Eastlake Community Council is sponsoring a public meeting on Tuesday (Jan. 18) with two topics:

Roanoke Street End Park: The park is looking a little haggard. Possibilities include new plantings, a redesign and maybe a historical marker to note that Boeing’s first plane was assembled at this site in 1916. Trees in the park (three willows and a poplar) were added to the city’s Heritage Tree registry last spring. Want to get help? Email or call 206-898-6147.

North Gateway Triangle: This is the area under I-5 where Eastlake and Harvard meet. Chris Leman notes in an e-mail that this piece of land was identified as a priority in the 1998 Eastlake Neighborhood Plan. Possible additions to the park include a piece of art or decorating the I-5 columns. The Seattle Parks Department has also suggested a skateboard park at the site. E-mail or 206-322-5463 to take part in the planning.

Both topics will be on Tuesday’s agenda. The meeting is at TOPS@Seward School, 2500 Franklin Ave. E., from 7-9 p.m.
