Save Parking Vital for Patrons of Beloved Neighborhood Businesses on North Eastlake Avenue
The Washington State Department of Transportation(WSDOT) is considering closing a parking lot at the north end of Eastlake Avenue due to construction of the next two phases of the SR520. They plan to use this parking area for staging/storage and employee/contractor parking. If this parking lot closes, 3 health-related clinics & the Pocock Rowing Center will likely go out of business or be forced to move. The below referenced businesses are working with WSDOT on viable alternatives including one possible location less than 1/4 mile away. We are encouraging WSDOT to work with local businesses who depend on this parking to survive.
PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION AND HELP US CONVINCE WSDOT THAT WE NEED THE PARKING AT THE NORTH END OF EASTLAKE to preserve our community's heritage, the health and welfare of our patients, and the economic viability of the Eastlake neighborhood.
