Main Street

Project Description

The purpose of the Main Street Corridor Concept Study is to provide the residents of Freeland with a safe, pedestrian-friendly, attractive Main Street . The Island County Department of Public Works, together with OTAK, Inc., and with extensive public input, is developing a vision and a conceptual design for Main Street from SR 525 to the intersection of East Scott Road (.59 miles). The project was identified as a high priority improvement in the Freeland Sub Area Plan.

What's Been Done So Far

The County began the Corridor Study process with a 3-day visioning workshop session in December 2005 which included meeting with smaller interest groups during the day and an evening meeting made available for the general public to attend. Residents, businesses, property owners, and community organizations were invited to give input on the vision of Main Street. Over 75 people participated in the 3-day workshop series. Following the visioning workshop and largely based on citizen input, the county developed two conceptual designs for Main Street. In February 2006, an open house was held to give the public an opportunity to see the results of the visioning workshop and to comment on the two proposed concepts.

What's Happening Next

There are several next steps in the process, as this Study is the early stage in the Main Street project. The next steps include:

  • County seeking funding from multiple sources (state and federal grants)
  • Finalize Corridor Study report
  • Preliminary design and engineering
  • Coordination with Freeland Sewer District planning efforts
  • Construction
