A public meeting is scheduled to discuss the Seattle School District’s request for a waiver from City zoning regulations regarding Laurelhurst Elementary School. The request is to modify current regulations to allow additional portable classrooms above the allowed lot coverage of 45%. The meeting will be held on Tuesday, March 17 at 6:30 p.m. in the Laurelhurst Elementary School Auditorium (4530 46th Ave NE).
This meeting will include a presentation on the requested modification before the Development Standards Departure Advisory Committee, a group composed of neighbors and School District and City representatives that is formed to address School District requests for a zoning departure. After the presentation, the public is invited to make comments concerning the request.
Following public testimony, the committee will make a recommendation to either grant outright, grant with conditions, or deny the requested zoning modifications; or it can decide to hold additional meetings. The final decision is made by the Seattle Department of Planning and Development.
If the public cannot attend the meeting, written comments can be submitted to:
Seattle Department of Neighborhoods
