Public is invited to comment on zoning modifications at Kimball Elementary School

The public is invited to share its feedback regarding the development plans for Kimball Elementary School located at 3200 23rd Ave S in Beacon Hill. The Seattle School District is requesting modifications (also known as “departures”) from several City zoning regulations for:

  1. Greater than allowed building height.
  2. Reduction of on-site parking.
  3. Reduction of bike storage.
  4. Bike storage without roof protection.
  5. Shared access path for pedestrian and bicycle traffic.
  6. Addition of an electric message board.

The Seattle School District has a detailed presentation on the modifications which you can view here. Upon receiving your feedback, the comments will be shared with the director of Seattle Department of Neighborhoods, Andres Mantilla. After reviewing, he will provide the recommendations regarding the proposed departures to the Director of Seattle Department of Construction and Inspections for the final decision.

Please submit your written comments by Friday, June 26 to:
