WEDGWOOD COMMUNITY MEETING - WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 25th

The next Wedgwood community meeting will be on September 25th, from 7-9PM at Wedgwood Presbyterian Church (Fellowship Hall). The meeting agenda is still being refined at this point, but headlining the meeting will be the Seattle Public School District's Design Team (Heery International and Mahlum) presenting the proposed design for the new Thornton Creek Elementary School. The design team will briefly explain the design process, which has included feedback from a School Design Advisory Team (SDAT) comprised of community members and educators, and details of a proposed school design that will begin to go through public permitting processes.
