Meeting scheduled to discuss zoning change requests for new Thornton Creek Elementary School
Public is invited to attend and provide comments on June 3

SEATTLE – A Development Standards Departure Advisory Committee meeting has been scheduled to discuss the Seattle School District’s request for a waiver from City zoning regulations to construct the new Thornton Creek Elementary School. It will be held on Tuesday, June 3 at 6:30 p.m. in the Thornton Creek Elementary School cafeteria (7711 43rd Avenue NE). The public is invited to attend.

The School District is requesting changes to City zoning regulations for the following:
1) Greater than allowed building height.
2) Less than required on-site parking.
3) Continuation of on-street bus loading and unloading.

This meeting will include a presentation before the Development Standards Departure Advisory Committee, a group composed of neighbors and School District and City representatives, on the requested changes to the development standards (zoning). There will also be an opportunity for the public to make comments concerning the request.

Following public testimony, the committee can recommend a waiver, recommend with conditions, or deny the request; or it can decide to hold additional meetings if the committee feels more information is needed. The final decision is made by the Seattle Department of Planning and Development.

If community members cannot attend the meeting, written comments can be submitted to:
Steve Sheppard
Seattle Department of Neighborhoods
700 5th Avenue, Suite 1700
P.O. Box 94649
Seattle, WA 98124-4649
