Comments from the Open House

Dunn’s 2017 Open House provided us with some helpful thoughts and ideas from our neighbors.

"I appreciate the fact you are including your neighbors in the decision. I know with the Dunn family involvement, this project will be very positive for the neighborhood!”

“Great project. Best of luck! Encourage bicycle traffic as much as possible and de-emphasize cab + traffic. The model lends itself to the upscale food mall idea, not an all-out grocery store that can be difficult to shop via bike."

“A space that brings the community together and promotes health and well-being.”

“I’m all over your exciting expansion plan. Love the European plaza concept, small grocery with sustainable foods, and a neighborhood pub! All very exciting and I applaud your invitation to us for input. Ask me in for input, volunteer work, etc. :)”

"Just an idea, would you be putting up historical plaques in regard to Dunn Lumber heritage? Or sponsoring a rubbish bin?  Also, how about a small area for a day park to get locals more involved in the neighborhood?  Love the fact that it's a local company."

"A market/ food hall would be amazing. A potential highlight of Seattle. An excellent model would be Granville Island Public Market."

"The idea of a market I feel will fit better, if you are improving pedestrian walkways."
