Golf Clubhouse, station block development on agenda for NBHC

A proposed design for the new Jefferson Park Golf Clubhouse, as viewed from the Beacon Avenue side.

The Jefferson Park Golf Clubhouse and the new development planned for the southeast corner of the Beacon Hill Station block — both topics of a fair amount of neighborhood interest — are on the agenda for the next North Beacon Hill Council meeting Tuesday, April 3 at 7 p.m. at the Beacon Hill Library community room.

Here’s the agenda:

This is an important meeting for all residents concerned with the
redevelopment happening on Beacon Hill. Please come to ask your
questions and voice your opinions.

  • 7:00 Welcomes and hellos
  • 7:15 Susan Rockwell, Seattle Parks Dep’t. Program Coordinator – Plans for the clubhouse at Jefferson Park; Q&A to follow
  • 7:45 Andrea Leuschke, Pacific Housing NW, Landscape Architect – An update on the development planned for the SE corner of 17th Avenue and McClellan (light rail station block) with questions and answers
  • 8:15 Community concerns and announcements
  • 8:30 Closure and executive board meeting if needed

The Beacon Hill Library is located at 2821 Beacon Avenue South. All are welcome to observe or participate in the neighborhood council; you are part of the council when you attend your first meeting, and you have voting privileges when you attend your second.
