Bastyr University Approaches State about St Edward Seminary Rehab

Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission & Bastyr University are seeking public comments on a proposal to rehabilitate the Saint Edward Park Seminary Building. The following text describes the proposal:

“Bastyr University plans to restore and reuse the historic Saint Edward campus buildings to address its current and future growth needs, rather than build on what is currently open space, ball fields and second growth timber lands on their adjacent campus.

The plan is to reuse the nationally landmarked seminary building for classrooms and student housing as originally designed. To accomplish this, exchange a comparable acreage of adjacent timberlands to expand the overall open space of the current park. In this plan, the Saint Edward gymnasium is not renovated. The mothballed pool building is converted to a lecture hall/multipurpose facility. Both of these buildings will be available for public use at designated periods.

The Park Ranger offices remain in their current location in the gymnasium, and the open space currently surrounding the seminary buildings would be preserved for future generations of park visitors.”

Note: the public meeting scheduled below is cancelled. The Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission is cancelling the planning meeting regarding the Saint Edward Seminary rehabilitation that was scheduled for February 4th at the Northshore Utility District in Kenmore. The cancellation is due to Bastyr University’s withdrawal of their proposal.

For more information you can go to the following link (http://goo.gl/Qfu0Ai) or attend the public meeting on Feb 4th from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Northshore Utility District, 6830 Northeast 185th Street, Kenmore, WA 98028.
