After thoughtful consideration this morning, the Seattle Design Commission voted 6-0 to recommend approval of the proposed arena at 1700 1st Avenue South. This comes on the heels of a recommended approval by the Design Review Board earlier this week.
This morning, public notice was posted regarding the availability of the Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) for the Seattle Arena proposal. The Final EIS includes updated traffic and transportation information, additional information on parking locations, additional details on transportation mitigation, and comments received on the Draft EIS with responses to those comments. The FEIS also updates potential mitigation measures for the identified impacts.
This afternoon, notice was posted regarding the availability of the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) for the Seattle Arena and the beginning of the 45 day comment period. Additional public notice will be sent for upcoming public hearings to take comment on the DEIS.
