Tonight’s BDC meeting to discuss Webster School reopening

Tonight’s Ballard District Council meeting will be all about the soon-to-reopen Webster School.

The meeting will feature a presentation on the autumn reopening of the K-8 at NW 67th and 30th Ave NW. Licton Springs K-8 will be moving away from its shared space at Robert Eagle Staff Middle School at N 90th and Stone Ave N to the renovated and expanded Webster School.

Webster, built in 1908, was used as an elementary school through 1979. It was then leased by the Nordic Heritage Museum from the 80s through 2018. The school district has been working to modernize the building ever since, and it’s set to be ready for students this coming fall.

The project manager, project architect, school principal, and Seattle School Board member Eden Mack will be there to provide info and answer questions.

Here’s the agenda:

  • 7pm – 7:15pm: Community introductions and sharing
  • 7:15 – 7:30pm: Eden Mack, Seattle School Board member, will provide an overview of the re-purposing of the Webster property by Seattle Schools and moving of Licton Springs K-8
  • 7:30 – 8pm: Brian Fabella, SPS Project Manager; Brian Ho, TCF Architecture; and Emily Butler Ginolfi, Licton Springs K-8 Principal will provide an overview of new school design and amenities, traffic flow, and neighborhood impacts
  • 8pm – 8:20pm: Community Q&A with panel of speakers
  • 8:20 – 8:30pm: Additional Business and Adjournment

The meeting will be held at the Sunset Hill Community Association (3003 NW 66th St). For more info or to RSVP, click here.
