I don't know what we will do if PCC leaves admiral. We count on them for groceries. So many memories of strolling/scootering there with my son, he looks forward to the free kid fruit. I've done the met market, trader joes, whole foods stores and they don't come close to the quality, freshness and taste of PCC products. PCC is the only simple and convenient natural store that we can trust to actually be local and organic. Others carry organic but the quality isn't always as great as PCC's. This stores has everything we need. PCC has spectacular breakfast/lunch/dinner self serve hot food area. It's much more tastier and less greasy/pricey then met market near by (not to complain, met market isn't bad but we love PCC). I live about 5 streets away. I hope PCC is incorporated somehow with the project. Admiral keeps them busy, rarely do I see the store not be busy. They would be nuts not to keep PCC in that spot. Who cares about whole foods, I think most members will stay with PCC. I have no interest in going to huge grocery stores. I prefer smaller, locally farmed true quality stuff. I'm blabbing away a little here but I'm just shocked to find out project plans for this spot. I'm going to be nervous watching where PCC will go. I don't mind project plans and restructuring in that spot as long as PCC stays! I am so sad reading this and just finding out. I don’t know what we will do if PCC leaves admiral.

I'm a native and now in my mid-50's and barely recognize my hometown. It's impossible to leave town or get home without relying on my knowledge of 'backroads' but even that is starting to prove difficult as the powers-that-be steal away traffic lanes and attempt to force people onto unreliable public transit. This city is quickly losing its soul and WS was one of the last decent places to live...but for how much longer? I hate what WS is becoming….hell, I hate what Seattle is becoming.

It sounds like parents are overall pretty happy with how their kids grow academically and personally at EWMS? I’m very interested in this school for my kiddo.

This location is on the bus line since it may soon take you an hour to drive from North West Seattle to South West Seattle due to the future 35th Ave road diet, plenty of space for your hummus and salsa and other goodies...a sorely missed opportunity for PCC and West Seattle.

I also agree with Dana Brown, why is it impossible to find a fenced park? It would be way less stressful for all parents with kids - like mine - who are tempted to run away regularly! I tried going to the Fountleroy hildren's Center, which is a great fenced playground structure, but it is private... Maybe that playground could be an option for this project, if the Center is up for it! Great initiative! I also agree with Dana Brown, why is it impossible to find a fenced park?
