State seeks public input on future use of Interbay National Guard property

A large swath of state-owned land in Interbay is up for redevelopment, and the state is asking for community input.

The land, located just north of the Magnolia Bridge, is currently being used as a “readiness center” by the Washington National Guard. Built in 1974, the facilities are now outdated, and don’t meet the National Guard’s requirements for mission support. There are more than 600 personnel on-site, and large military equipment moves in and out of the area on weekends. They say that with increasing traffic in the area, it’s time to move locations, so the Guard is looking for new facilities elsewhere.

Now, the governor and legislature have created the Interbay Public Development Advisory Committee to advise and help identify potential future uses of the site. Assuming the Guard will be relocating, the committee will work to guide the redevelopment process, “with the goal of recommending a use that maximizes the property to the overall benefit of the public,” according to the Department of Commerce. Using community feedback, the committee will make a recommendation to the state legislature in November.

The first public house to learn about the Interbay Project will be on March 19 at 6pm and the Ballard VFW Hall (2812 Nw Market St). Those who attend will meet the advisory committee members and project team, learn about the project, and provide ideas for the future of the property.

  1. Fill with junkies and other criminal parasites and their professional bureaucrat enablers, surround with a wall then fill with rubble—er I mean hugs. Give them all big rainbow hugs.

  2. A shopping center would be nice. Clothing/ nostalgic stores so we won;t have to travel so far to buy clothes…… No coffee shops, or breweries. IMO

  3. Well this is easy…build a mix of market rate and modest income housing. Prioritize it for folks who work in the immediate area or can take metro downtown. It is by the train tracks so any building would have to address the sound pollution.

          1. Probably because we are surrounded by and have to put up with idiots like you who ignaorantly stereotype and judge everyone?

    1. An All Low Income Housing site. Tents, RVs, tiny houses, Nicklesvilles, urine-soaked piles of cardboard; no fences, easy access to QA and Magnolia and the D line to Ballard; a little Interbay city hall to pass out all the necessities- needles, phones, Orca cards.
      It’s gonna be huge! Yuge!!

      1. Liberals love creating sh*tholes when they aren’t obsessing about “safe spaces” and all that other nonsense. Really confusing.

        Have a look at this bit of libtardery. They filled up the state with illegals, who then can’t seem to avoid getting hooked on shooting meth. Hilarity ensues, which of course is all blamed on…you guessed it: Uncle Sam, and by extension all of us working taxpayers who wear condoms and keep needles out of our arms.

        You see, liberals talk alot about “agency” but all their social justice pets can’t seem to be bothered to control themselves but WHOO BOY GET THEM TO THE POLLS TO VOTE DEMOCRAT.
