  1. 91st AVE NE Revitalization Plan
  2. 2022 retail strategies
  3. Reports and findings


With new interchanges complete along Highway 9 and 204, the city has partnered with KPG Psomas to present design options for this corridor with an intent of enhancing accessibility for pedestrians, cyclists and cars.  Once complete, this project will improve the appearance of this area for business owners, residents, and visitors.


The goals of the 91st Ave NE Revitalization plan are to:

• Create an inviting “main street” shopping district along 91st Avenue NE that better connects the retail core with the surrounding residential areas

• Develop a more pedestrian-oriented streetscape with amenities such as wider sidewalks, seating, improved lighting, wayfinding, and public art

• Safely accommodate bikes and vehicles moving through the corridor

• Incorporate low impact stormwater design to filter runoff from impervious surfaces


The city has created a survey to collect input from business owners and consumers in the community.  During the conceptual design phase is the best time to share ideas and preferences with the street options currently being considered.
