The Department of Planning and Development will hold two meetings tonight to discuss the environmental impact and design aspects of Urness House, the proposed 80-unit mixed-use building for chronically homeless men and women at 1753 NW 56th St.
A look at the proposed Urness House.
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. A look at tonight’s presentation to the Design Review Board can be found here (.pdf).
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.”
Both meetings will be held tonight at the Ballard High School Library. The environmental meeting starts at 6:30 p.m. with the design review meeting at 8.
