Sorry, this is a little late in getting out to there. The August meeting of the 12th Avenue Stewardship Committee was August 10th and full of good discussion.
Will there be a streetcar barn on 12th Avenue near Yesler? SDOT is considering it and would likely partner with Seattle Housing Authority to redevelop the adjacent site as housing.
Seattle Housing Authority is also applying for federal money through the Choice Neighborhoods grant (to the tune of $31 million) to help fund redevelopment of Yesler Terrace and revitalize the surrounding community.
The King County Youth Detention Center funding will show up on the Fall ballot as Proposition 1 looking to increase sales taxes .2%.
Capitol Hill Housing continues work to develop the site at 12th and E Jefferson. Petroleum contamination will be cleaned up on the site this fall and hopefully their request for a contract rezone will be successful.
The Bullitt Foundation is planning to build a living building at 15th and Madison Street which will create enough energy to operate, reuse water runoff, and green up the surrounding streets.
For more details, check out the attached minutes below.
Next meeting: Sept. 14th at 5:30pm
Seattle University Alumni & Admissions Building
