Tonight: School Board talks transportation times; Southwest District Council talks ‘pedestrian zoning’

February 5, 2014 at 1:57 pm | In West Seattle news, West Seattle schools | 6 Comments

Today’s mega-event coverage pre-empted the big daily preview, but it’s not too late to look ahead to two meetings of note tonight:

SEATTLE SCHOOL BOARD TALKS TRANSPORTATION: Last month, the vote on changing transportation times – which affect bell times – was postponed, amid complaints that families hadn’t had enough time to find out about proposed changes, let alone comment on them. Tonight, a revised proposal goes to the School Board. See it here; the revised list of proposed arrival/departure times (NOT the same as bell times) is here. It’ll come up after 6 pm during the meeting at district HQ in SODO. (3rd/Lander)

SOUTHWEST DISTRICT COUNCIL TALKS PEDESTRIAN ZONING: She briefed the Westwood-Roxhill-Arbor Heights Community Council last night, the Morgan Community Association two weeks ago, and tonight, Aly Pennucci from the city Department of Planning and Development will be at the Southwest District Council to talk about the city’s proposal for a “zoning overlay” changing some development rules in neighborhood business districts. Other topics include neighborhood road safety (SDOT’s Jim Curtin is the guest) and an update on the proposed California Avenue SW Historic/Notable Structure survey (here’s an earlier WSB report). The meeting’s at 6:30 pm at the Senior Center of West Seattle. (California/Oregon)

  1. The link for ” changing some developiment rules in neighborhood business districts” goes instead to the list of bell times linked in the previous paragraph. Can you add the correct link?

  5. I was not able to go to the meeting, but I just spotted a Times blurb saying it was approved.

    I am going to check with the district in the morning to be sure there weren’t any amendments, etc..
