The public is invited to share its feedback regarding the development plans for Northgate Elementary School located at 11725 1st Avenue NE. The Seattle School District is requesting modifications (also known as “departures”) from several City zoning regulations for:

  1. Off-site bus loading/unloading
  2. Reduction of on-site parking
  3. Greater than allowed building height
  4. Reduction of bike parking
  5. 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.
