Next step in Admiral Church’s redevelopment plan: Questions for you

Back in April, we reported on Admiral UCC Church‘s decision on what future to pursue for its half-acre North Admiral site, after years of discussion, both within the church and with the wider community: The church decided to explore partnering with Homestead Community Land Trust, so that part of the site could become “permanently affordable, ownership-focused housing.” Now the next step: Admiral Church has launched a brief community survey, 10 questions on one page. You can respond here. The church has been journeying toward change for its site for more than three years, realizing that the status quo is financially unsustainable, as discussed in a February community meeting.

    How about a homeless shelter? Isn’t that the Christian thing to do?

      They already tried that, as extensively covered here. Doesn’t address the issue of what to do with the entire site.

      Derek. What are YOU doing for the homeless???-other than complaining “someone should help them”.

    Homestead is a wonderful organization! Land trusts help folks own homes without paying for the cost of land, meaning you can get a new-construction (and in Homestead’s case, entirely green energy) home in Seattle for less than a fraction of what you would pay otherwise. Homestead specifically prioritizes families, first-generation home owners, and people who are already working / renting in the neighborhood. I highly recommend anyone who is interested in affordable housing solutions to check them out. Awesome solution for Admiral Church to pursue!

    Survey link not working?

    • WSB June 29, 2022 (8:41 pm)

      Seems to be closed. I’ll check with them to see if that intentional – there was no mention of a deadline when this was sent to us …

        Yep, survey link is closed.  I too tried to respond.

          They confirm it was only meant to last a week, which they didn’t tell us when sending it for publication, so sorry about that.
