Recommendations for Waterfront Program Planning and Design

December 7, 2018

Darby DuComb is a land use and real estate lawyer at SF&S.  Recently she authored an article in the Puget Sound Business Journal commenting on the Seattle Waterfront Local Improvement District (LID).

The Waterfront LID is an almost $1.4 billion program, nearly $1.1 billion of which has already been secured or will be secured through taxpayers and philanthropy.  The Waterfront LID is designed to contribute an additional $200 million dollars for a Promenade, an Overlook Walk, Union St. Pedestrian Connection, Streetscape Improvements, and improvements to Waterfront Park.  The Waterfront Program agenda outlines its purpose and plans. Darby’s  article in the Puget Sound Business Journal urged the City to delay moving forward with the Waterfront (LID).  This is because there are simply too many unresolved issues with the Waterfront LID, and now there is more than 50% opposition to it.  This opposition supports delay until further planning is completed.
