City affirms original environmental decision on Greenwood Fred Meyer site

by | May 11, 2012

This afternoon, the city’s Department of Planning and Development affirmed its original Determination of Non-Significance of environmental concerns at the Greenwood Fred Meyer site. Fred Meyer is now free to begin work on its major renovation of the site, which includes a down-to-the-studs remodel of the existing store, the demolition of the former Greenwood Market building, and a large addition.

Fred Meyer closed the Greenwood store on Feb. 25, before the deadline for appealing the city’s original decision. Neighborhood activist Kate Martin then appealed, and a hearing was held on April 25. Hearing examiner Sue Tanner issued her decision this afternoon.
The city added one condition: Fred Meyer will have to add some kind of landscaping or pedestrian buffer around NW 85th Street and 3rd Avenue NW.
