Draft EIS Available for Review
The City's consultant, EA engineering, Science and Technology, has completed the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the East Seattle School demolition. This draft EIS provides an analysis of alternative actions for the proposed demolition of the East Seattle School, and it will inform the City’s decision on how to act on the demolition permit. The draft EIS evaluates 3 possible scenarios: A) demolition of the building, B) continuation of existing site conditions, and C) adaptive reuse of the building.
City staff will host a community information session on the draft EIS on Thursday, February 27, from 6:00 – 7:30 PM at Mercer Island Community & Event Center, Room 103 (8236 SE 24th Street Mercer Island, WA 98040). The meeting provides an opportunity for agencies, organizations and individuals to discuss the Draft EIS, as well as an additional opportunity to submit written comments. Time will be available for Q&A and discussion. Please join us!
The public comment period for the Draft EIS has been extended pursuant to WAC 197-11-455(7). Comments are invited through March 26, 2020. Written comments should be addressed to Robin Proebsting.
