Public is invited to discuss zoning modifications at West Woodland Elementary School

The public is invited to discuss the development plans for West Woodland Elementary School located at 5601 4th Ave NW. The meeting will be held on Monday, January 6 at 6 p.m. in the West Woodland School cafeteria. The Seattle School District is requesting modifications (also known as “departures”) from a City zoning regulation for:

  1. greater than allowed building height
  2. reduced setbacks for building and site structures in the north and south
  3. reduction of on-site parking
  4. addition of bicycle parking
  5. addition of an electric message board.

The Seattle School District will make a presentation on the modifications before the West Woodland Elementary School Development Standards Departure Advisory Committee, a group composed of neighbors and Seattle School District and City representatives. After the presentation, the public is invited to provide comments. Following public comments, the committee will deliberate and consider the District’s request. Additional meetings may be held, if needed.

If community members cannot attend the meeting, written comments can be submitted by Friday, January 3 to:
