Thanks to reader Rocky for this info.
The City is having a meeting tonight at 6:30 pm in the Thornton Creek Elementary cafeteria to discuss SPS' request for a waiver from City zoning regs for the new school.
From the City's press release:
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:
Seattle Department of Neighborhoods
700 5th Avenue, Suite 1700
P.O. Box 94649
Seattle, WA 98124-4649
