Save the Ave!

Like every neighborhood in Seattle, the U-District is transforming. Old buildings are knocked down and shiny new ones take their place. Stomping ground we know so well becomes unrecognizable overnight.

Zoning changes have brought in the construction crews, but University Way NE, or The Ave, has remained untouched. This is due to the efforts of the U District Small Businesses and U District Advocates, who delayed the vote for zoning around The Ave, as it is a slice of history and home to many eclectic businesses that would not be able to remain if redevelopment happens (this includes our beloved City Garden Community Acupuncture!). This vote delay will expire this fall and it will be time for the Seattle City Council to make their decision. There's still time to have our voices heard!
