Designed to look very similar to this apartment building in the Roosevelt neighborhood, the 30 unit 'no parking' apartments proposed for 6917 California Ave. S.W. are the subject of another public meeting Dec. 19 at the West Seattle Senior Center.

'No Parking' apartments meeting is Dec. 19 with Seattle DPD at Senior Center

The next public meeting on the 30 unit, 'no parking' apartments planned for 6917 California Ave. S.W. is happening tonight Dec. 19 at the West Seattle Senior Center starting at 6:30pm in Hatten Hall.

This meeting will be with the Seattle Department of Planning and Development.

The Senior Center is located at 4217 S.W. Oregon Street.

The project has come under more public scrutiny since a petition was drafted and signed by more than 560 people who variously question the wisdom of building a 3 story, 30 unit building with no parking in what many regard as an already crowded neighborhood.

In the previous meeting on the project, the developer, Mark Knoll, defended the project by pointing out that these apartments are 300 sq. feet in size, as studio units and that the market would determine the kind of people who might live there, implying that the residents would most likely not have cars.

The project is allowed under Urban Village rules adopted in the 90's that permit buildings with no parking to be constructed if they are close to frequent bus service.
