The North Seattle Industrial Association (NSIA) is the premier business organization for north Seattle maritime, manufacturing and industrial support businesses and its property owners.
For more than 20 years, NSIA has worked to ensure the economic viability of businesses, increase economic growth, provide gainful employment for our residents, and to be responsible members of our local communities, both socially and environmentally.
Our members are primarily located in the industrial areas of North Seattle in Lake Union, Fremont, Ballard and Interbay.
Today, Seattle’s maritime, fishing and industrial sectors have never been stronger. We create thousands of family wage jobs, provide a solid tax base and contribute immensely to our community and its quality of life.
From the historic Ballard Locks to Fishermen’s Terminal to Lake Union, hundreds of businesses are thriving. They are a critical part of what has made and will continue to make Seattle, Seattle.
Meeting the Challenge
Today, there are also significant government policy and regulatory issues that can impact a business and its ability to succeed.
That’s where NSIA can help your business. We can make a difference, thanks to our strong working relationship with all levels of government.
We have been the leading voice on issues such as the Shoreline Master Program Update, Viaduct redevelopment/tolls, Mercer Corridor development, Burke-Gilman bicycle trail, a new Ballard Bridge, homeless issues, Sound Transit service to the neighborhood, Port of Seattle development in Interbay, maintaining truck access on the Central Waterfront, the Freight Master Plan Update, City employee regulations and dozens of other important issues.
We look forward to working with you!

The Future of the Ballard Bridge.
The City is doing a study on the choices they have for the rehabilitation of the existing bridge or building a new one. The Seattle Department of Transportation will be looking for our opinions.
Clean Fuel Legislation.
The State Legislature and the Puget Sound Air Quality Board will be examining new fuel standards. Whichever fuel standards are decided will lead to increase costs for your business. Attend the meeting and find out what different business advocacy groups are doing about this situation.
