The Seattle School District can allow many new uses in former schools without convening a special committee, city planners said Thursday.
The District asked for the clarification with regard to eight closed and closing schools: Genesee, at 5012 S.W. Genesee St., Columbia, at 3528 S. Ferdinand St., T.T. Minor, at 1700 E. Union St., John Marshall, at 520 N.E. Ravenna Blvd., Horace Mann, at 2410 E. Cherry St., Viewlands, at 10525 Third Ave. N.W., Hughes, at 7740 34th Ave. S.W., and Fairmount Park, at 3800 S.W. Findlay St.
"What we were looking for at at this point was simply to expand the potential uses of these eight specific closed schools," district spokesman David Tucker said.I guess the thing that I still shake my head over is how many closed, leased or interim buildings we have.
