A. Purpose. The purpose of the MDD4 zone is to allow existing business to grow, adapt and change over time. This zone allows manufacturing and light industrial uses along with other kinds of employment uses. It is connected to the light rail station area via NE 67th St. and NE 68th St. Employees at businesses in the MDD4 zone have easy access to recreation via the East Lake Sammamish Trail and to a variety of goods and services on the other side of the trail.
