The Seattle Waterfront: What's Next?
Creating a Dynamic Port for Both Traditional Maritime Uses and Visitor Growth
Significant investment is underway to transform the Seattle Waterfront with new street infrastructure, rebuilt piers, and pedestrian friendly parks. The goal is to create a dynamic waterfront to support economic opportunities from increased tourism, cruise ship docking and revitalized retail and service amenities. The Port of Seattle, with its long-range plan, is also committed to creating thousands of new jobs for the Puget Sound Region while addressing key environmental goals and social responsibility for all its stakeholders. How can the traditional waterfront maritime industries that move cargo, dock ships and fish in the Sound be retained while supporting the vision for a revitalized waterfront that becomes a strong magnet for tourism and local businesses? Is there a synergist plan for combining these uses as well as transforming the waterfront into the greenest and most energy efficient port in North America? Hear from these panelists on the planning challenges and strategies underway to make this vision a reality.
