Monday night, go to the SCCC facility at 23rd Ave S. and S. Lane at 6 PM (architect’s proposal at 8 PM) to see what they are planning. I’m begging because I have a few concerns.
First: I’m worried about the mural being destroyed
Second: From what I see of the design, it appears there will be a new parking lot on 23rd. But, the back side of the property may present safety issues so it’s worth neighbors who live right by there getting involved.
Third: SCCC is required to have a Major Institution Master Plan. Turns out this site is not subject to that rule because ‘it is separated by more than 1/4 mile from the main campus and far below the threshold for its being a separate major institution’ (from the answer to a query made to the city). So, there is a gap when it comes to minor insititutions. All the more reason for neighbors to come to the meeting and weigh in.
Fourth: There is a revision to the zoning code being proposed that just seems like it’s tailor made for these plans. It’s to allow wood shops to go up to 35 feet in lowrise zoned areas. >;;;http://web1.seattle.gov/dpd/luib/Notice.aspx?id=9637 You might wish to comment whether you think it’s a good idea or not.
Fifth: It’s a HUGE piece of property, so I hope you’d want what happens there to be an amenity to 23rd Avenue and the nearby community.
