Volunteers needed to advise on zoning modification to Robert Eagle Staff Middle School

Here’s your chance to serve on an advisory committee that will recommend whether to grant a zoning modification requested for Robert Eagle Staff Middle School located at 1330 N. 90th Street. Seattle Department of Neighborhoods is seeking community members to serve on this committee.

The Seattle School District is requesting a modification (known as a “departure”) from select City zoning regulations to reduce setbacks for field lighting at the school.

The committee will convene up to three public meetings at Robert Eagle Staff Middle School (1330 N 90th St.) over a three-month period. The committee will receive briefings from the School District, and gather and evaluate public comment on the departure request. Following these meetings, the committee will make a recommendation to the Seattle Department of Construction & Inspections (SDCI) to either grant or deny the requested modification. The committee may also recommend relevant conditions to be applied to granting the change to minimize its impacts on the surrounding neighborhood. SDCI will make the final decision.

Those who can apply to the committee are neighbors who live or own a business within 600’ of Robert Eagle Staff Middle School, residents in the surrounding neighborhood, representatives of city-wide education issues, PTO members and parents of the school. Other committee members will include a representative from the School District and City of Seattle.

To apply, please send a letter of interest by either e-mail or regular mail by Thursday, November 30 to:

The Major Institutions and Schools Program provides a way for neighbors of Seattle’s hospitals, universities, and colleges to be directly involved in the development plans for those institutions to ensure neighborhood concerns are considered when those plans are made. It is a program of Seattle Department of Neighborhoods.
