Steps At Stevens - building new steps to WSHS
"Steps At Stevens" is a project in which West Seattle HS is planning to:

 - Provide a safe, accessible and pleasant way for pedestrians from California Ave. SW to arrive at and depart from the school building.

 - Develop a visually recognizable and beautiful pedestrian route to WSHS primary entrance.

The "West Seattle High School Steps at Stevens Committee" (SSC) is soliciting Statements of Qualifications for planning a safe and visually recognizable pedestrian route to the primary west entrance to West Seattle High School located at 3000 California Avenue SW, adjacent to SW Stevens Street. This project is funded by a grant from the City of Seattle Department of Neighborhoods Matching Fund providing approximately $20,000 for design and consultant fees. Please refer to the Request for Qualifications submittal requirements (click here).

Information on this project will be updated as it occurs.  If you'd like to become involved or have any questions, please contact Janet Jones at ws_janet@msn.com.
