On Dec. 4, the Seattle City Council will discuss acquiring land on the southeast corner of Aurora Avenue North and North 130th Street for a new North Precinct Police Station. The Government Performance and Finance Committee’s meeting will include a public hearing at 9:30 a.m. at City Hall, 600 Fourth Ave. 2nd Floor, in Council Chambers. You can also watch live on the Seattle Channel or Seattle.Gov.
The committee will vote on Dec. 12, and the full council will vote on Dec. 16.
Also, if you couldn’t make it to the Oct. 26 open house on plans for the new precinct, you can read residents’ comments collected that day online.
The existing North Precinct, near North Seattle Community College, was built in 1984 to house 154 staff but is now overcrowded with 254. The new site, at 4.1 acres, will accommodate a 60,000 square foot station for up to 370 officers and civilian staff, multistory parking for patrol cars, and community meeting space.
