West Seattle development: Community-petitioned meeting set for 4439 41st SW

Announced this morning: The city has set the date for a public-comment meeting on 4439 41st SW, the 40-apartment, five-parking-space project that has drawn opposition from neighbors including nearby schools and churches. Today’s Land Use Information Bulletin includes the official notice of the meeting – 7 pm Thursday, May 8th, at the Senior Center of West Seattle (California/Oregon). The project did not require a meeting, as it’s not subject to Design Review, but the community can request one on a project by collecting at least 50 petition signatures. Petitions were circulated after an organizational meeting three weeks ago (WSB coverage here). This is the same type of meeting held in recent months for projects including 6536 24th SW in March, 3210 California SW in February, and 4535 44th SW in November.

  1. I was unable to attend the meeting last evening, however, I do want to express as a home owner/tax payer, my total disgust with our Planning Commission that something like this continues to happen. I have lived in West Seattle since 1987 and have watched our neighborhoods become feeder lines for condensed traffic as these types of projects have been built/planned. Something has to give as the once feeling of living in a “neighborhood” where kids could play safely, you could park in front of your own home -but now have to drive around to just find a place is not the case. We are becomming another Freemont, Ballard situation fast and the morning drive to just the local favorite spots are becoming a nightmare. Encroachment like this is absolutely insensitive to maintaining that feeling of West Seattle’s family/home friendly atmosphere. While I realize that progress has to happen, it does not have to be tailored to the let other’s worry about the logistics of parking and traffic flow. When is our City Council going to wake up?? Our neighborhood streets are becoming “feeder lines of traffic” for the irresponsibility of providing enough parking spaces for these types of projects!
