Ft. Lawton Redevelopment Community Meeting

Wednesday, June 21 @ 6:30 pm- 8:30 pm
Magnolia Community Center

The City of Seattle Office of Housing is considering redevelopment options to allow housing and park uses on the 28-acre former Fort Lawton Army Reserve Center site located in the Magnolia neighborhood in northwest Seattle. Anticipated uses include supportive housing for formerly homeless people, affordable rental and ownership housing for low income families and individuals, a variety of public park uses (including both active and natural uses), and a park maintenance facility. The City recently entered into a 5-year lease agreement that releases the Army from the ongoing costs of maintaining the property, while ensuring adequate time for the City to conduct SEPA review and create an updated redevelopment plan for consideration by the City Council. The City has hired a consultant to ensure the full range of environmental impacts are considered through an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS), and will engage the public and solicit input throughout this process.

There is a community meeting at Magnolia Community Center on Wednesday, June 21, 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm.

Here is a link to an overview of the site. Additional information is here.
