Change.org petition to save the parking lot under I-5, a block south of the University Bridge The Pocock Rowing Center, Movement Systems Physical Therapy, Seattle Spine and Sports Medicine, and Wallace & Solhaug Family Dentistry are asking the public to sign their Change.org petition “to convince WSDOT that we need the parking at the north end of Eastlake to preserve our community’s heritage, the health and welfare of our patients, and the economic viability of the Eastlake neighborhood.” WSDOT is considering excluding all parking from the lot for five years, and use it instead to stage construction materials for the SR-520 expansion project. To reach the petition, click here or visit Change.org and search for the petition under “Eastlake parking”. More than 1500 have signed so far.

Please circulate the above info to others.  For more about the Eastlake Community Council and how to help make and keep Eastlake a great place to live, work, and play:  http://eastlakeseattle.org. Contact ECC at info@eastlakeseattle.org.
