    Longfellow Building

    This Thursday, September 18 at 6:30 PM in the Port Gardner Room of the Community Resource Center (3900 Broadway) there will be an opportunity for public input on the Everett School District’s plans for the Longfellow Building (3715 Oakes) and the Educational Service Center (4730 Colby).

    If you can’t make it to the meeting, you can also fill out this online survey through Friday, October 10.

    Here are the full details from a recent Everett School District email update:

    In 2012-13, the community helped recommend short- and long-term options for ways the district could use all of its properties. This 2013 Property Use Matrix is online.

    To launch public input about property use, especially of Colby and Longfellow, the district has drafted some proposed revisions to the 2013 Matrix (pdf) and to reflect facilities changes made since the Matrix was last updated.

    “We are asking the community to share their thoughts about these drafted options and to suggest other options in several ways,” explained Mike Gunn, Executive Director of Facilities and Operations. We hope you will take time to visit with us next Thursday to learn more about the process and leave comments. Or, if attending that session isn’t possible, we invite community members to leave your comments online. We also welcome questions and comments via email at property@everettsd.org.

    We’ll merge public input from the survey, from email, and from the meeting with other site and market information being gathered and updated. The Capital Facilities Advisory Council will study this information between now and November before a board decision in December.”

    The October through December timeline is outlined on the Facilities and Planning website.
