A Notice of Proposed Land Use Action sign was put up on Fremont sometime around Dec 8, 2017 for the proposed microhousing project (#3026875) at addresses 3959 and 3965 Fremont Ave N.
It is interesting to note that although the Approved Presubmittal Minutes of 8/1/2017 listed the early guidance item: Meet with neighbors to hear concerns and questions, share concept ideas, the developers arranged no such meeting and instead chose to put up the notice of land use action so that the short public comment period would take place during the winter holidays. The developers also put the sign up in front of the wrong property (they placed it in front of 3955 Fremont Ave).
Fortunately, two of our observant neighbors quickly emailed the SDCI (Seattle Department of Construction & Inspections) regarding the improperly placed sign, and the suspicious holiday timing of the public comment period that appears to be designed to limit the amount of resistance to a project that they know is uniformly opposed by the neighborhood. The PRC (SDCI Public Resource Center) responding by granting a 14 day extension of the public comment period. This moves the deadline for public comment from Dec 20, 2017 to Jan 3, 2018.
Update: The deadline for public comment has been extended to Jan 10, 2018.
