Updates on the Madrona Corridor Plan and 34th Ave Sidewalk Repair

At the Madrona Community Council meeting last week, the SDOT presented an overview draft of scope work to address various conflicts with trees and sidewalks in the community. The ultimate goal for the SDOT will be to develop a “toolkit” of options to address these issues, using case studies such as the 34th Avenue  East corridor in Madrona as an example to illustrate what applications can be installed. The goal is to create a safe, inviting walkway environment, while growing and maintaining a healthy urban forest and preserving the existing areas. tree

Work will be completed in 2013, with repairs to sidewalks damaged by street trees, and implementing tree removal where necessary. They will be planting new trees where needed, and researching and implementing long terms solutions to the issues at hand. If you’d like to review the Draft Scope of Work for the project, any comments for suggested changes will be accepted now through February 7th and can be viewed here.
