The City of Sequim will be holding a Design Charette for the South Sequim Complete Streets Project from Wednesday, August 28, 2019 through Friday, August 30, 2019.  This three-day event, facilitated by Framework, a planning and public outreach consultant, will start with a Community Kick-Off Meeting held at the Sequim Civic Center, 152 West Cedar Street, from 6:00 pm to 8:00 p.m.

The purpose of the South Sequim Complete Streets Project is to design and construct a collector street connecting 9th Avenue and Brown Road located between Washington Street and the US Highway101, using “Complete Street” principles that address the full array of street design aspects, including automobile, pedestrian and bicycle mobility, safety, neighborhood aesthetics, water and sewer utilities and stormwater management.  The project will also result in a set of complete street design standards for South Sequim which can be replicated for future projects throughout the city.

The Design Charette is being held to facilitate community input into the design of the project, resulting in preliminary routing and concept designs for what the street will look like at the ground level for road width, sidewalks, landscaping, bike lanes, streetlighting, stormwater management and other details.  At the Kick-Off meeting, Framework will present the existing infrastructure and land use conditions in South Sequim, showing automobile and pedestrian traffic data, land use and an inventory of sidewalk, street light, road, open space, stormwater facilities and bike lane amenities.  Framework will then facilitate a process to involve the public in the development of project concepts.

After the Kick-Off Meeting, Design Charette activities will continue Thursday, August 29 through Friday, August 30.  Framework will be holding an open design session, where they will be actively producing complete street design concepts, using community input.  The design sessions are open to the public and will be held at the former Sequim Administration Building at 226 North Sequim Avenue. A full schedule of events for August 29 and 30 will be provided at the Kick-Off Meeting.
