We’re still confirming details of how the logistics will work but Seattle Central has announced that its board will meet Wednesday to consider adopting an “emergency rule” drafted by the State Attorney General’s office allowing the removal of the Occupy Seattle camp from the school’s Broadway campus.
A SCCC representative tells us that the board will discuss the situation and “hear a variety of perspectives” before voting on whether to adopt the emergency rule.

VI. RECOMMENDED BOARD ACTION
A. Proposed Emergency Rule on Camping
The rule reportedly addresses unsafe conditions county health inspectors and school officials say are a growing problem on the campus as the Occupy camp approaches its first month at Broadway and Pine. Occupy Seattle organizers have said many of the complaints leveled against it are unfair and that the group is working to address many of the issues.
