Residents appeal Seattle Children's Hospital review

Seattle Post-Intelligencer, December 2, 2008

The Laurelhurst Community Club has appealed Seattle's environmental impact statement for Seattle Children's Hospital's proposed expansion plan. The proposed hospital expansion would more than double the number of beds and building sizes on the hospital's 22-acre campus and the 1.8 acres facing it. The environmental impact statement considers the effects on issues such as traffic, housing, noise, aesthetics, light and shadows, and air and water quality. Laurelhurst residents appealed the review to the Seattle Hearing Examiner, saying it "understates the expansion's harmful impacts, including gridlock, and refuses to study any compromise alternatives that would help prevent them."
