UPDATE: Principal John Miner of Thornton Creek Elementary has informed us that there will be a SEPA community meeting on Wednesday, 4/23 at 7:00PM at Thornton Creek Elementary.
Last Friday (April 11th), the Seattle Public School District issued their DRAFT State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) Checklist for the new Thornton Creek Elementary School building. The DRAFT SEPA Checklist assesses the project (e.g., the new Thornton Creek School) and its environmental impact. This project-level DRAFT SEPA Checklist is different from the Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) that was associated with the Building Excellence IV Capital Levy in that the DRAFT SEPA Checklist provides project-specific description and analysis. The Public Comment period on the DRAFT SEPA Checklist is open until 5:00PM, May 2nd. All public comments should be sent to the District’s SEPA Official, Ms. Pegi McEvoy.
The District has also issued an addendum to the BEX IV Programmatic EIS for the relocation of existing portables on the Thornton Creek Elementary School site.
