Seattle Arena Virtual Public Comment Meeting

SDCI has received a new application from the Seattle Arena Company (ArenaCo) for a Major Public Project Construction Noise Variance from the City of Seattle noise limits. ArenaCo is requesting a 13-month noise variance for the renovation of Seattle Center Arena (Key Arena). The variance would allow construction work during nighttime hours that exceeds the City’s sound level limits (Chapter 25.08 Seattle Municipal Code). SDCI is holding an online public meeting using WebEx Events on Thursday, August 27, 2020. Representatives from ArenaCo will be available to provide information about the project and SDCI will discuss the noise variance process.

Key Arena RenderingSDCI has received a new application from the Seattle Arena Company (ArenaCo) for a Major Public Project Construction Noise Variance from the City of Seattle noise limits. ArenaCo is requesting a 13-month noise variance for the renovation of Seattle Center Arena (Key Arena). The variance would allow construction work during nighttime hours that exceeds the City’s sound level limits (Chapter 25.08 Seattle Municipal Code).

ArenaCo’s remaining work includes loading dock tunnel construction, structure construction, and interior build out. This variance application applies only to the construction activities occurring during nighttime hours. ArenaCo proposes to conduct construction under the new variance between September 2020 and September 2021. ArenaCo’s application includes a list of the proposed nighttime operations, describes the reasons for nighttime work, and includes a new noise monitoring and mitigation Plan.

To see the full application and learn more about the variance request, search for record number 6793446-NV in the  Seattle Services Portal.
