Talk with School Board member about plans for Meany school modernization

The Seattle Schools  Capitol Levy (Proposition 2) has been approved, so the the School District can proceed with its  plans for Meany School:

Meany Middle School: Modernize and re-purpose. ($14.5M)

The existing building would be modernized. It was originally built as a junior high school and would be reopened as a comprehensive middle school. This project will address current and projected middle school enrollment growth in central Seattle and reduce overcrowding at Washington Middle School. 

I suspect many neighbors of Meany School will be interested in the design process for the school. Our School Board member (Kay Smith-Blum) suggests that we attend her next community meeting: Saturday February 16th, 10 – 11:30 AM at the Capitol Hill Library, where she can share information about the new Meany School.

I raised the possibility of a specific neighborhood meeting about the project, perhaps as a Miller Park Neighborhood Association meeting. She noted that they will be convening a building team in March, and that would be a good time for us to get involved and that she could help arrange a meeting.

Please contact me (andrew_taylor@me.com) if you would like to be involved in the Meany School planning process, and please share this with other interested neighbors.
