The full agenda has been released for the Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission’s special meeting to consider a 62-year lease agreement with Daniels Real Estate for the Seminary Building at Saint Edward State Park.
The agenda, which includes the lease agreement, can be found on the Washington State Parks website at parks.state.wa.us/AgendaCenter/Commission-Meetings-1. There haven’t been any major changes to the lease agreement since the plan for Daniels to turn the seminary into a 100-room lodge-style hotel was announced earlier this year.
The commission meeting, announced earlier this month, will begin at 5:30 p.m. Jan. 5 at Bastyr University, 14500 Juanita Drive NE. The commission will decide whether or not to allow the state parks director to enter into the lease agreement with Daniels, and it requires a majority of five of the seven commissioners.
The meeting’s agenda includes a public comment period for those interested to share their thoughts. Public comments submitted to email@example.com through 5 p.m. Dec. 30 will also be made available to the commission prior to the special meeting.
For more information, contact Parks Planner Michael Hankinson at 360-902-8671 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The City of Kenmore also released the Final Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Lodge at St. Edward on Dec. 16. It includes data on the impacts for three options: following the current plan for the property, adapting the plan to include a different location and layout for parking, and doing nothing to the property.
Those wishing to appeal the FEIS have until 4:30 p.m. Jan. 6 to do so. The FEIS and more information about the project’s environmental review process can be found on the City of Kenmore’s website at www.kenmorewa.gov/lodgeatsaintedward.
