Background: A group of property owners led by well-known real-estate/property management partners Roger Cayce and Mike Gain are asking the city to “upzone” both sides of California Ave. between Hanford and Hinds (and a bit south of Hinds; city map screengrabbed above) from NC1-30 to NC2-40, as preparation for future redevelopment. The first details emerged at last week’s Admiral Neighborhood Association meeting; here’s our detailed report. Then, last Friday, the city set November 29 as the date for the first full public meeting on this. And tonight, we know that meeting will be at 6:30 pm in the library at West Seattle High School. Representatives for both the city and the property owners will be at the 11/29 meeting, and public comment will be important, for and from anyone interested/concerned in the plan. Here are a few other details of note:
First, you don’t have to wait for the meeting to comment on the proposal (its city page is here). You can e-mail or call the city planner who is assigned to the project:
Second, in our previous reports, it had been suggested that we post a link to the Admiral Neighborhood Plan, for those interested in comparing whether this proposal seems to fit with it. Documents relating to the plan are linked here.
Third, if you are interested in looking up the individual properties involved (more than 20), you can do that with the King County Parcel Viewer.
