Now the new Hearing date has been set for:
• When - Wednesday, November 17, 7pm
• Where - Richmond Masonic Center, N 185th and Linden Ave N
(parking available at Fred Meyer)

Why Should You Attend? 
     • It is a Landmarked Historic Building
     • Ronald School is the oldest public building in Shoreline, built in 1912
     • It is a unique and rare freestanding structure that represents a semi-rural school building
           that is a fine example of the "classical revival" style of that period
     • It is in the City's Community Vision and was proposed as an element of our 
         Town Center Subarea
     • It is a vital part of the fabric of our community 
     • The Shoreline Historical Museum has been the steward of this building since the 1976
           Bicentennial, when the museum was created
