Some of the most commonly heard concerns around the neighborhood these days relate to parking–where to do it, how much to pay, and will there be enough once all the new apartments are built. Jonathan Williams, Senior Planner for the Seattle Department of Transportation, recently visited the RNA business group to discuss these issues and share results from the City’s latest parking survey.
Like most neighborhoods, Roosevelt’s parking is a patchwork of paid and non-paid spots. The city collects data annually on the paid parking areas and uses them to evaluate rates and time limits. It should be no surprise to residents that our peak hours are 11 a.m to 2 p.m. Williams explained that the City will work with residents and businesses to evaluate and mitigate high volume areas, like the large influx of drivers attending fitness classes around Roosevelt Way NE and 65th St. Williams also mentioned that “pay by phone” is coming to Roosevelt this fall.
