SAFEWAY REDEVELOPMENT PROJECT UPDATE IV

THE APRIL 4th EDG MEETING HAS BEEN CANCELED

The EDG Review Board heard all of us. Most importantly, Safeway heard all of us. The Safeway design team, influenced by our community's voices, has started from scratch to design a project that they hope will reflect and respect what we would like to see occupy this pivotal corner in the heart of our neighborhood.

Needing additional time to work on their plans, the design team has asked to postpone their presentation scheduled for Wednesday, April 4th. A new date has not yet been set. 


THE PPQA BOARD WELCOMES TWO NEW MEMBERS

We'd like to introduce Judy Massong and Denny Bird. 


Judy has an eye for beautiful gardens as well as a lovely green thumb. She's a devoted gardener with an in-depth knowledge of Pacific Northwest horticulture. You may have visited her beautiful garden on a tour of Queen Anne residential gardens. A long-time PPQA donor and garden volunteer, she's excited to be putting her knowledge of gardening and fundraising to good use in her community.

Denny waxes eloquently about our Queen Anne neighborhood and shows it daily in the interactions he has with friends and neighbors. He further shows it as a member of the Queen Anne Community Council and its Land Use Review Committee. After taking part in PPQA garden work parties and fundraising activities over the last two years, this man of boundless energy, enthusiasm, and know-how (he also has a green thumb) finally agreed to become a Board member.

We're thrilled to have you both at the table!
Laura, Sheila, Kathy, Ellen, Margaret, Wayne

SAFEWAY REDEVELOPMENT PROJECT UPDATE III

In light of the Early Design Guidance (EDG) Report issued on December 28, 2017, the Safeway team has gone back to the drawing boards to start from scratch and redesign their project.


Picture Perfect Queen Anne has sent a letter to the Safeway team and the building department’s city planner calling attention to and advocating for key recommendations embodied in the   
Queen Anne Avenue Streetscape Master Plan.

The Safeway team will be invited to attend either the February or March LURC meeting to present their new plans prior to their presentation before the EDG Review Board on April 4th.

We will continue to relay information as we receive it.
