City of Seattle – Seattle Public Utilities Property Sale and Seattle Public Schools Property Purchase Notice
Seattle Public Utilities Henderson Street Pumping Plant
Comment Period Jan. 26–Feb. 27, 2023
Posted Jan. 26, 2023
The City of Seattle’s Seattle Public Utilities (SPU) Department owns a parcel of drainage and wastewater property (DWW) that is excess to the needs of the Utility and is needed by Seattle Public Schools (SPS) to redevelop Rainier Beach High School in the southeast Rainer Beach neighborhood.
The City of Seattle would like to sell the property to SPS and needs to first collect comments from the public as part of the public notification process for property dispositions. In conjunction with the property sale, SPU plans to transfer the SPU-owned assets (a maintenance hole) on the site to SPS. King County may also explore easements or asset transfers of the 12-inch diameter main sewer to Seattle Public Schools, as a separate action.
This site would be used by the school district for staging areas during construction and in the future would be part of the Rainier Beach High School campus. At this time, there are no alternate uses or plans being considered for this excess property.
Comments received will be collected and summarized as part of a final report to Seattle Public Schools and City of Seattle elected officials and decision-makers.
