Meeting Scheduled to Discuss Zoning Changes for Magnolia Elementary School

A public meeting is scheduled to discuss Seattle School District‘s plans to renovate and construct additions to the existing Magnolia Elementary School building. The meeting will be held on Wednesday, September 14 from 6:30 – 9:00 p.m. at Catharine Blaine K-8 School (2550 34th Ave W).

The Seattle School District is requesting modifications to City zoning regulations for the following:

1) Increased lot coverage.
2) Greater than allowed building height.
3) Continued “off-site only” parking.
4) Allowance of a double-faced, electric changing message board.
5) On-street bus loading and unloading.

This meeting will include a presentation by the Seattle School District on the requested modifications before the Development Standards Departure Advisory Committee, a group composed of neighbors and School District and City representatives. After the presentation, the public is invited to make comments concerning the request.

Following public comment, the Committee will deliberate and consider the District’s requests. Additional meetings may be held, if needed. If community members cannot attend the meeting, written comments can be submitted by September 12 to:
