They’ve met with the city, and with the developer. Next step: Meet with you. While pursuing an appeal of city decisions about the 30-apartment, no-offstreet-parking plan at 6917 California SW in Morgan Junction, “a small group of neighbors has continued to advocate for possible solutions with the Department of Planning and Development and the developer,” and invites you to hear and talk about what’s next. Their invitation: “Come to this meeting to hear updates and vote on some proposed mitigation solutions for our community!” The meeting is set for 7 pm Thursday (May 15th) at The Kenney (WSB sponsor), 7125 Fauntleroy Way SW. Neighbors’ appeal hearing is still on the schedule too, rescheduled for May 20th (9 am, Hearing Examiner‘s chambers at the Municipal Tower, 700 5th Avenue downtown).

  2. As long as the tenants are not allowed to own cars I don’t see the problem. What? its not THAT much of a stretch from the draconian tenant rules a lot of places have.

  3. With the new Three Little Birds kids clothing store that just opened down the street, parking is already feeling an additional squeeze.

  4. It’s so nice Mayor McGinn changed the playbook for developers so they get a tax cut when not putting in parking for tenants. It’s great to see the little developers just getting a little socialist handout while the evil homeowners pay for it.

  5. Where do guests park?

    Is this development by the same guy who is polluting WS with mega developments that are over-sized and ugly? Key cheap ingredient: the lowest grade siding that looks like a manilla folder. Our neighborhood (a few blocks away) is now home to the ugliest (3-story house!) structure ever built. This developer has no soul, or taste.

  6. Sarah – the developer is Mark Knoll. He fielded neighborhood questions in an earlier meeting we covered.

  7. Yup, that’s the guy. He hires cheap labor, does not practice safe employment standards – OSHA has been made aware – and he is determined to make West Seattle his personal dumping ground for these horrid structures. They will not age well. He’s a pillage and run (back to Magnolia, bet he would not want to live next door to one of his own monstrosities) kind of developer. No care for the neighborhoods he ruins. Greedy. Karma will out.
