- First Public Meeting: A public meeting is scheduled for Monday, June 19, 6:30-8:30 pm at Daybreak Star Indian Cultural Center (5011 Bernie Whitebear Way). Join the City of Seattle Office of Housing, Seattle Parks and Recreation, and the Department of Neighborhoods to learn about the vision for Fort Lawton and the environmental review process.
- Second Public Meeting: A second public meeting is now scheduled forWednesday, June 21, 6:30-8:30 pm at Magnolia Community Center (2550 34th Ave W). After sending postcards to 5,000 Magnolia households to publicize the June 19 meeting, we were informed of a conflict with two important community events—the Ballard High School graduation and Seattle Public Schools Magnolia/Queen Anne elementary school boundary change meeting. We will now offer a second public meeting to accommodate more people who would like to learn about the vision for Fort Lawton and the environmental review process. This meeting will offer the opportunity to provide written public comment on the scope of the proposal.
- Written Public Comment: Public comment can be submitted to the City of Seattle by email, in writing, or in person. All methods of comment submission are treated equally; comments provided in writing carry the same weight as those received in person.
