Status: Completed January 2011


The purpose of this project was to recognize the benefits of green infrastructure on the human and environmental community and to develop and incorporate these ideas and concepts on a residential street. This project has enabled safe access for pedestrians, bicyclists, and motorists of all ages and abilities; provide natural drainage solutions for environmentally friendly stormwater management; and enhance the natural habitat and human community through the use of low impact development strategies.

Low impact development (LID) is a stormwater management strategy that emphasizes conservation and use of existing natural site features integrated with distributed, small-scale stormwater controls to more closely mimic natural hydrologic patterns in residential, commercial, and industrial settings (Low Impact Development Technical Guidance Manual For Puget Sound, 1995)

The City worked to develop a partnership with the neighbors on 17th Avenue NE between NE 150th and NE 145th Streets on the first demonstration project for the new program. Shoreline funded improvements within the right-of-way and residents help maintain the new features. The approach focuses on engaged education and collaboration. The success of this project and the overall program depends on our collective ability to create a more valuable and effective environment.
