The City of Bothell and the UW Department of Architecture will hold a panel discussion on design aspects for Main Street from 3:30-5:30 p.m. March 31 at Bothell City Hall. This will be the first of four public meetings.
The Storefront Studio, an outreach program of the UW Department of Architecture, focuses on historic Main Streets of Washington State. The goals of the program are both preservation and economic development. Bothell was chosen as the partner for spring quarter 2017, March 27 to June 2.
Student designs facilitate discussion on and funding for a mix of community-generated projects in architecture, landscape architecture and urban design.
“Although individual programs and projects vary, every project enhances community resilience, inclusivity and authenticity, through historic preservation, economic revitalization, complete street/green street strategies, and enhanced streetscapes and infrastructures,” a release from the UW states. “Each studio (program) begins by meeting the community in the first of a series of town hall meetings and open-house presentations. The studio starts as open-ended research by mapping local physical, social and historical assets. With community feedback, the studio partners to design enhancements for strategic community architecture and public space.”

- Community Open House – “Assets, Objectives – Before and After,” April 28
