Ballard Urban Design

Our planning effort will help Ballard address the changes it's had over the past 10 years.
Partnering with the community to identify a vision that will shape growth and guide new development in Ballard.

Get Involved

You have choices for how you can get involved and receive updates for the Ballard Urban Design project.

Option 1 — Join the community conversation on Imagine Seattle.

Imagine Seattle is an online space for community conversations. For 5–6 months, we'll ask you to share your ideas and feedback on a series of topics. You can also comment on others' ideas, "like" ideas, share photos, and add your own information to maps. You'll need to create an account to use this tool, but it's a quick and easy process.

Join the Conversation

Option 2 — Complete a one-time survey.

You may prefer a one-time opportunity to share your thoughts instead of a sustained conversation over the next 5–6 months. If that sounds like you, complete our online survey.

Option 3 — Subscribe to our mailing list.

Sign up to receive updates when new information is posted about this project. Submit your email address in the box in the upper right (or below if you are on a mobile device).

Option 4 — Attend community meetings.

We will be holding a series of community meetings to share information and get your input. We'll post our meetings on this site's calendar and send notifications to everyone who signed up for updates (see Option 3 above).

Option 5 — Read our meeting notes.

Stay informed through meeting notes from our advisory group and community meetings. We'll post those notes here after each meeting.

Community Partnerships

Ballard Partnership for Smart Growth's Urban Design and Transportation (UDaT) Committee is working with us as an advisory committee for the Ballard Urban Design Framework. They provide consistent review and advice on the direction of this project and its products. The advisory committee meets on the first Thursday of each month from 4 to 5:30 p.m. at the Ballard Landmark multi-purpose room (5433 Leary Avenue NW). You may attend the meetings as an observer and there is a comment period at the end of each meeting.
