  • 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.

  • Capehart Forest now open
    Friends of Discovery Park making it official

    It took a few decades and a lot of tree saplings, but the latest part of Discovery Park is open for visitors.
    Capehart Forest, which has been under restoration since the early 2000s, is now open to the public with new hiking trails, sidewalks and more. The 30-acre section of the park used to be filled with more than 60 military homes owned by the Navy before it was purchased for $13 million by the City of Seattle in 2010, according to Friends of Discovery Park president Philip Vogelzang.
  • Easy Guild Plantings for your Backyard
    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.
  • WSDOT releases Montlake Market survey results

    Neighborhood business’ fate remains uncertain as SR 520 Bridge replacement looms

    It is feasible to preserve the Montlake Market and still reconfigure Montlake Boulevard during the next phase of the SR 520 Bridge Replacement and HOV Program, but it will add millions to the project.

  • (StatePoint) The warmer weather means it’s time to start thinking about home improvement projects. Whether you’re getting your home in tip-top shape for your own enjoyment, or getting it ready to put on the market, not all home improvement projects are created equal when it comes to return on investment (ROI).
  • After an extraordinarily cold winter in Western Washington, many garden owners will want to know what to do about the damage to many of our not-completely-hardy shrubs. With many of our broadleaf evergreens, it’s common for their leaves to turn brown or black and eventually fall off. The plants themselves are probably still alive. To check, use a hand-pruner blade to peel back a little bit of the “skin” to see if the cambium layer just beneath is alive (green) and not dead (brown). If alive, it’ll probably flush out with a new set of leaves. So, don’t panic if your shrub looks dead. Wait and see.
  • Protecting tenant rights through increasing the length of eviction proceedings is part of eviction-reform legislation, currently in the state House of Representatives.

    The House Committee on Civil Rights and Judiciary heard public testimony on Engrossed Substitute Senate Bill 5600 on March 19.
  • What is the ingredient “fragrance”?
    “Fragrance” is an ingredient - often times multiple ingredients - rolled under the singular-sounding ingredient listing. The ingredient(s) contained within the term “fragrance” do not need to be specifically listed. Therefore, when you see the word “fragrance” in an ingredient list, it is likely a variety of undisclosed chemicals.

  • 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.
