The Department of Planning and Development has scheduled two meetings next month to discuss design and environmental aspects of Urness House, the proposed 80-unit mixed-use building for chronically homeless men and women at 1753 NW 56th St.
The first meeting is regarding the environmental review process of the project, the second is a presentation to the Design Review Board. At the Design Review Board meeting, Compass Housing Alliance will present their plans that correspond with priorities set by the Early Design Guidance Board meeting in February.
These meetings are open to the public and the public is encouraged to comment. “Please note that the purpose of this meeting is to hear public comments that relate specifically to the design considerations of the proposed project. The SEPA public meeting, immediately preceding this meeting, will discuss the environmental concerns associated with the proposed development.”
The first meeting will be held June 14th from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the Ballard High School Library. The Design Review meeting will be held in the same location on the same date at 8 p.m.
