    The inspiration of summer gardening is upon us. Walk into just about any store and you’ll find an abundant array of plants to inspire your weekend activities. But if you’re like me, you may find that what you plant one summer doesn’t live long enough to make it to the next summer. We may forget to water (or forget to water enough). Once the novelty of summer wears off, we forget about the plants - they get covered up, stepped on or lawn-mowed over. Or maybe pests chomp them up before they have a chance to establish themselves
  • Sheltering Seattle’s Homeless Critters
    City animal shelter working with available space to provide rescue

    The Seattle Animal Shelter has been operating in the same Interbay facility since 1982. It has managed to operate there for nearly 40 years by being creative with its existing space, reducing its intake through education and spaying and neutering programs, loyal volunteers and a boost in private funding through the Seattle Animal Shelter Foundation.

  • Save Madison Valley continues opposition to The Madison

    Land-use petition challenges hearing examiner decision, seeks new design review process

    Save Madison Valley has filed a land-use petition in King County Superior Court, the neighborhood group’s latest attempt to scale back plans for The Madison mixed-use development.

    The Seattle Hearing Examiner’s Office in February partially sided with the Department of Construction and Inspections director’s decision to allow construction of the six-story mixed-use development that will have a PCC Market as its ground-floor anchor tenant. It will replace the City People’s Garden Center at 2925 E. Madison St., adding 82 housing units in Madison Valley.

  • The spring real estate market in Seattle is traditionally the strongest of the year, and we’re in the middle of it right now. Past data tells us that the period from mid-March to June is when we record the highest sales of that given year.

    This year is right on that trend. We’re in a seller’s market, and homes in good condition under $1 million are moving quickly. Homes priced above $2 million are sitting longer on market, especially if they’re not truly turnkey.
  • The Seattle Landmarks Preservation Board is seeking a new member to fill its real estate position. The board make landmark designation recommendations and reviews landmark properties when alterations are requested.

    Board meetings are held at 3:30 p.m. on the first and third Wednesday of each month, and the commitment is roughly 10 hours per month. The open position is for a three-year term.

    Those interested in being considered are asked to send a resume and letter of interest to board coordinator Erin Doherty by Monday, May 27, at Erin.Doherty@seattle.gov.
  • Puget Sound Energy expects to begin replacing a Central District natural gas main from 1981 with corrosion-resistant plastic pipe this spring.

    The project will be broken down into three phases to handle 22,000 feet of pipeline, the common two-inch DuPont pipe material to be replaced with new piping from 4-6 inches in diameter. The added capacity will help prevent potential outages during big draws on natural gas, said PSE project manager John Guay, such as during lengthy cold snaps. It will also increase capacity as new residential construction comes online along Martin Luther King Jr. Way.
