DESC Delridge project: Advisory committee sets public hearing date; Design Review moved up to March 8th

There’s one more week to go for public comment on the land-use-permit application for the DESC Delridge project (details here). And we just discovered tonight that the tentative date for the project’s next Design Review Board meeting has been moved up two weeks to March 8 (West Seattle Senior Center, 8 pm). But those are not the only opportunities you have for input on the proposed 66-unit homeless-housing project at 5444 Delridge Way SW. We’ve reported before on the community advisory group formed as part of the process – and tonight, its first public meeting has just been announced for February 21st. The official announcement was sent by Pete Spalding, who is co-chairing the group:


The Delridge Supportive Housing Advisory Committee will be hosting a public hearing at the Youngstown Cultural Arts Center, Main Theater, 4408 Delridge Way SW, Seattle, WA 98106 on February 21, 2012 beginning at 6:30 pm.

This will be an opportunity for the Delridge community to provide input on DESC’s supportive housing development on Delridge Way SW. This will be a public hearing. Interested speakers can begin signing up at 6:00 pm. Each person who signs up to speak will be allotted two minutes to address comments to the committee.

The advisory committee is comprised of project stakeholder representatives, including North Delridge Neighborhood Council appointed community representatives (known collectively as the Delridge Alliance), DESC representatives, and other stakeholder representatives. DESC & the Delridge Alliance have established the Delridge Supportive Housing Advisory Committee in order to engage interested neighbors to collaboratively address issues of concern and solicit their advice on the projects impact on the Delridge community.

Testimony given at the public hearing in addition to previously provided neighbor input, will be the basis for the beginning discussions of the Delridge Supportive Housing Advisory Committee.

Neighbors who are unable to attend this public hearing can direct comments to their Delridge Alliance Advocates via e-mail to To learn more about the Alliance, please visit NDNC Delridge Alliance.

    Did the Delridge Supportive Housing Advisory Committee ever fill all of the positions it had open?

    Tracy, It’s my understanding that the public comment period on the master use permit has been extended an addtional two weeks, until March 1. Can you confirm this for us?

Sorry, comment time is over.
