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.
