Magnolia Neighbors to Meet about Upcoming Bridge Replacement Study
The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) is hosting a community "scoping" meeting for the Magnolia Bride Replacement Project. The purpose is to learn what the public thinks would be important to study in the project's Environmental Impact Statement (EIS).
May 22, 2003
5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Blaine K-8 School, 2550 34th Avenue West
So far, SDOT plans to examine in the EIS:
· Earth; Plants and Animals/Fisheries
· Water Quality
· Hazardous Materials
· Land Use
· Relationship to Plans and Policies
· Socioeconomic Conditions
· Environmental Justice
· Historic and Cultural Resources
· Visual Quality
· Parks and Recreation
· Air Quality
· Public Services; and Utilities
SDOT is asking the public if there are other categories it should be looking at, or if people have specific concerns within one of these categories.
The meeting will begin at 5:30 p.m. with an open house-style format with project team members available to ask questions. At 6:30 p.m. a brief presentation will be given on the three replacement alternatives. The meeting will conclude with public comments being taken by a court reporter starting
at 7:00 p.m.
The public can also leave written comments at any time during the meeting or send them by June 6 to:
