SEATTLE-Ten Space Needle vistas have now been officially protected by the Seattle City Council.

Officials have passed an ordinance, which amended the City’s Environmental Policies and Procedures Ordinance to identify places in Seattle where views of the Space Needlewarranted public protection from the impairment that could result from new development.

The action was prompted by a study completed by DCLU and the Seattle Strategic Planning Office in April 2001. Titled “Seattle View Protection Policies: Space Needle View Inventory and Assessment,” the study identified 10 public locations from which the view of the Space Needle would be protected under SEPA.

Those 10 locations include: Alki Beach Park (Duwamish Head), Bhy Kracke Park, Gasworks Park, Hamilton View Point, Kerry Park, Myrtle Edwards Park, Olympic Sculpture Park, Seacrest Park, Seattle Center and Volunteer Park.
