The Seattle School District is requesting a modifications (also known as a “departure”) from a City zoning regulation for 1) increased total ground coverage of all buildings or structures on site, 2) reduced setbacks, which are distances from a property line where you are not allowed to build without special permissions, and 3) reduced short-term bicycle parking capacity.

The Seattle School District will make a presentation on the modification before the John Muir 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.
