Historical NoteReturn to Top

The creation of Seattle's Department of Community Development was approved by City Council in February 1969. The DCD was expected to "administer the city's comprehensive plan, to review the administration of city building codes and hear building code infractions, and to manage urban renewal and neighborhood planning." (Source: Historylink.org Essay 1178) James Braman was the director of the department from 1969-1974, during which time the Urban Renewal Project for Pike Place Market was developed. G. R. Bartholick was the architect and planner for the Pike Place Project. Other organizations involved in the project were the City of Seattle Board of Public Works, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, Victor O. Gray and Company (structural engineers), Rader and Leonard and Associates (control survey), Benjamin S. Notkin and Associates (mechanical engineers), and R. Martenson and Associates (electrical engineers).
