At this meeting, the Departures Committee, QAE parents and QAE neighbors can see the plans presented by QAE’s architects and learn about requested "departures" so the Departures Committee can make decisions. In order to facilitate the QAE renovation project, SPS has requested some standard "departures" from the zoning for the area. These include expanding the footprint of the building, parking and bus areas. We would love parents to come to this public meeting to see the plans and advocate for QAE!
See the official City of Seattle notice about the meeting and the PTSA's QAE Renovation page for more details about the project. Here's the text from the City:
A public meeting is scheduled to discuss Seattle School District plans to renovate and construct an addition to Queen Anne Elementary School located at 411 Boston Street. The meeting will be held at Queen Anne School on Tuesday, June 6 at 6:30 p.m.
The Seattle School District is requesting modifications (known as departures) to the City’s zoning regulations for the following:
- Increased lot coverage.
- Continued “off-site only” parking.
- On-street bus loading and unloading.
This meeting will include a presentation by Seattle Public Schools on the requested modifications before the Queen Anne School Development Standards Departure Advisory Committee, a group composed of neighbors and School District and City representatives. After the presentation, the public is invited to make comments. Following public comment, the Committee will deliberate and consider the District’s requests. Additional meetings may be held, if needed.
