Special Report from The Magnolia Community Council 

City of Seattle Office of Housing – Fort Lawton Army Reserve Center Redevelopment

  • The next step in the planning process will be the preparation of a Draft Environmental Impact Statement. This Draft EIS will be made public later this year, which will be followed by a 45-day public comment period and a public hearing.  A list of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) to address some of the most common questions we received during the scoping period are available here.
  • In response to interest from Seattle Public Schools (SPS), the Office of Housing provided additional time for SPS to evaluate the site more closely, and determine whether it had a feasible path to include a school in the redevelopment. A copy of the response letter from SPS is available here.
  • August 21, 2017.  The City of Seattle Office of Housing has published its Environmental Impact Statement – Summary of the Public Scoping Process summarizing the range of comments received during the public comment period, and finalizing changes to the scope of the EIS.  The full report is available here.

Help us Expand the Harvest to Queen Anne & Magnolia

In 2017, City Fruit hopes to expand the annual harvest effort to Queen Anne and Magnolia neighborhoods! But, we need your help! 

We are looking for neighborhood residents, tree owners, businesses, community organizations, and others interested in the annual harvest to serve on an Advisory Committee. This committee will help develop ideas for registering new tree owners, engaging the community, and raising funds to support the harvest. We are also interested in expanding our Orchard Stewardship to the area and have begun to identify fruit trees on public land.

If you are interested in joining the Advisory Committee, email City Fruit’s executive director, Kate Morrison, at kate@cityfruit.org. The time commitment will be minimal: we are looking for your ideas and connections in Queen Anne and Magnolia neighborhoods.

To kick-off this work, the committee will meet once in January at a local coffee shop or gathering place.
