FCA was aware that the City was planning on enacting sweeping changes to Seattle’s parking policies and was concerned the new ordinances would not take into account Fauntleroy parking challenges given the number of cars already attracted to the area by the ferry and Lincoln Park. The proposed ordinance would allow developers of lots zoned commercial, residential split and multifamily to push parking onto the street as opposed to providing for parking on the property if the property was near rapid transit. We worked with the West Seattle Councilmember to treat Fauntleroy similar to the Alki Overlay which requires builders provide for offstreet parking in deference to the demand for street parking created by users of Alki Beach. The new ordinance requires off street parking is required for commercial, residential split lot and multifamily development within 1,320 feet of the Fauntleroy Dock (SMC 23.54.015 footnote 4 of Table B).
On Monday, September 17th from 5-7 pm at the Fauntleroy Church (9140 California Avenue SW) Washington State Ferries will hold an open house to introduce a draft of the Long Range Plan.
Washington State Ferries (WSF) will release the Draft Long Range Plan for a 45-day public comment period and hold a second round of community meetings in Fall 2018. Come to an open house (pdf 718.04 kb) to review and comment on the Draft Plan
This plan projects a 37% increase in Fauntleroy/Southwroth riders by 2040, and a 19% increase in Vashon/Fauntleroy riders. The plan also appears to include enhancements to the Fauntleroy Ferry Dock and Terminal, and vessel replacement among other things.
