The Weingarten "megaproject" proposal for the 4755 Fauntleroy block could set the precedent for the rest of the neighborhood with 370 apartments, national chain stores, and greater impacts on neighborhood traffic, safety and parking. Unfortunately, as of 4/8/14, the Weingarten development at Fauntleroy & Alaska is on its way to a full council vote. ChairpersonTom Rasmussen's approval of the biggest megaproject of its kind in West Seattle is another illustration why it's time for the city to modernize its definition of what constitutes a public benefit. The city council should consider the public's priorities, such as compliance with neighborhood plans, public transportation, family wage jobs, affordable workforce housing, and more. It should no longer be okay to sell public property to developers and businesses who don't meet Seattle's community-oriented standards.Send an Email to Seattle City Council Now!
