.. -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 />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.
