.. -4 89' <br />• February 11, 1980 - continued <br />a route to and from the ferry dock, SR 1.04 having.been designed for that. She felt that a turning <br />lane was not necessary except -possibly where Puget Dr. becomes 9th..Ave. N. John Osterhaug of 1008 <br />9th Ave. suggested the easement..be..extended. on.the north side, north, of the trees, putting the <br />sidewalk there. Jim Muller did not..think.the traffic at-3rd..and Caspers, or llth and Puget Way was <br />as.high'as had,been indicated, and'he questioned why a.current...trafficcount was not available. The <br />public portion of the hearing was. closed. <br />Councilwoman. Allen noted that there were.indications.on the record.from the rest of the City that <br />196th.had to be improved. Councilman Naughten stated that multiple zoning would not be permitted <br />just becausea highway is widened. He felt that the left-turn.lane and sidewalk were safety factors, <br />and he noted that the Council was not see -sawing back and forth on their decision, but they had <br />found it would take $88,000 of the citizens' money to insist on their first decision. Councilman <br />Gould raised the issue of undergrounding, noting that 81st to 88th had not been undergrounded <br />because that was not where the view properties were located. He asked if there was an explanation <br />for the reduction in State funding..- Mr. Herzberg responded that it was due to reduced consumption <br />of gas, -resulting in less tax money, and also.that.inflation.was.catching up with all of their <br />projects. Councilman Nordquist added..that Mr. Zirkle had indicated also that the commitment on the <br />right-of-way.acquisition was not, in fact, a State Highway Department policy, and he could not <br />understand,why the commitment had -been made. Councilman Kasper.felt the highway could be built <br />within 45',-. He did not see a solution without three.lanes in the upper area.and he felt sidewalks <br />were needed,.at.least on one side, as.long as it is retained as a State highway. Regarding the <br />lower area, he noted that there will.be-increased traffic turning on 7th Ave. because of the expansion <br />of the Holy -Rosary Church and school.. He questioned the need of three lanes west of 7th Ave., <br />however, feeling that would be devastating. Councilman.Nordquist suggested there be three lanes <br />from Olympic to 7th, but not beyond, and he saw no reason for three lanes between Olympic Ave. and <br />MOTION: <br />Olympic View Dr. Councilman Naughten wanted to research this- more. COUNCILMAN NAUGHTEN MOVED TO <br />CONTINUE THE SR 524 DISCUSSION TO FEBRUARY 19, 1980. COUNCILMAN NORDQUIST SECONDED THE MOTION FOR <br />DISCUSSION. Councilman Naughten said he would like to pursue some alternatives and make sure every <br />avenue has been covered. Mayor Harrison.asked Mr. Herzberg to review the proposed sidewalk location, <br />and Mr.�Herzberg indicated it on a drawing. Councilman Gould said he would like to see Councilman <br />Kasper's- proposal marked on a drawing.and also where the bus pullouts are proposed. He was also <br />interested in some different ideas on the sidewalk, for both the north and south sides. THE MOTION <br />THEN CARRIED, WITH COUNCIL MEMBERS KASPER AND ALLEN VOTING NO. It was noted that the public hearing <br />on the matter had been completed and there would be no hearing when the matter is next discussed. <br />Councilman Kasper then proposed a motion changing the design to.eliminate the turning lane -in some <br />areas, but Mayor Harrison ruled the.motion out of order.because the Council had asked for more - <br />information to be considered, and .Councilman Kasper withdrew.h.is motion. <br />PROPOSED ORDINANCE REORGANIZING.COMMUNITY.DEVELOPMENT DEPARTMENT <br />MOTION: <br />COUNCILMAN NORDQUIST MOVED, SECONDED BY COUNCILWOMAN ALLEN, THAT THIS DISCUSSION BE,POSTPONED UNTIL <br />THE COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE HAS.
