As reported here last month, the project team for the Admiral Safeway redevelopment has announced that construction won’t start till September, because the city didn’t schedule the public hearing on the necessary back-of-the-lot “alley vacation” till late July. This morning, the official announcement of that hearing is out – it’ll be before the City Council’s Transportation Committee (chaired by West Seattle-residing Councilmember Tom Rasmussen) at 9:30 am July 27. This city webpage has details on how to comment before, and at, the hearing. While the “alley” isn’t recognizable as one, the way it’s used on the site now, it remains city right-of-way, and that’s why approval is required before it is given over to the project (that area will be under the future expanded store.)
Sorry, comment time is over.
