Here is your chance to provide public comment to the advisory committee which will identify uses and recommend criteria for the establishment of non-school uses for Martin Luther King, Jr. Elementary School, 3201 East Republican Street, to the Director of the Department of Neighborhoods.  Seattle Public Schools wants to consider MLK Schools for possible non-school uses that are consistent with the underlying zoning (SF 5000).  

The Committee will gather and evaluate public comment to establish criteria of non-school uses of the building and grounds, which are compatible with the surrounding community, zoned Single Family 5000.  The Land Use Code requires a minimum of three public meetings.  The committee can recommend any relevant conditions for permitted uses to be applied for granting these changes to minimize its impacts on the surrounding neighborhood.  Should you have any questions please contact me at 684-0209 or at [email protected].
