Water Way 22 Community Meetings

 

Community Meeting

You are invited to attend two public meetings at the Miir Flagship store in Fremont/Wallingford because FONLU needs your input on a proposal to improve a piece of land along Lake Union.

 

The piece of land -- Waterway 22 -- is located just south of the intersection of Stone Way and 34th (near the Burke Gilman Trail). We are hoping that this piece of shoreline can be restored to improve the environment and create a better space for the public. We need your input on what any potential improvements should look like. Refreshments will be provided!

Waterway 22 Vegetation Plan
Fonlu is currently working with Earth Corps to develop a vegetation plan for Waterway 22. The plan is the next step in the restoration process and will incorporate findings from the preliminary engineering report and public meetings from the past year. The plan will also cover invasive plant removal processes as well as planting plans for the site to account for erosion control. FONLU will use the plan to help fund the full restoration of Waterway 22.
