Updated with new start date of Sept. 19.

A landscaping crew is scheduled to perform tree work at Sand Point Learning Center on Saturday, Sept. 19, Monday, Sept. 21, and Wednesday, Sept. 23. The work includes removing trees that are dying or hazardous and pruning healthy trees to remove dead or low branches.

Chainsaws and chippers will generate noise. Some parking spots on the south side of the property will be coned off, but no impacts are expected to the north parking lot. The one-way road along the west side of the building will be closed on Sept. 23. Work will occur between 8 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. each day.

If you have questions, please contact Meghan Fuller, manager of Grounds Maintenance, at 206-307-6687.


Mulch Placement at Hospital Campus, Sept. 17

On Thursday, Sept. 17, Pacific Topsoils will place mulch at the Seattle Children’s hospital campus along the west side of 45th Avenue NE, south of the intersection with NE 47th Street. The mulch will be placed using a blower truck, which will be parked on the west side of 45th Avenue; although the truck will block the west travel lane, vehicles will still have room to drive past.

The blower truck will generate noise, and the mulch will generate some odors. If conditions are dry, the mulch placement could also create some dust. This work will occur from 9 a.m. to approximately 4:30 p.m.

If you have questions, please contact Meghan Fuller, manager of Grounds Maintenance, at 206-307-6687.
