The Seattle Landmarks Preservation Board will consider the nomination of the P-I Globe at its Wednesday, March 7, 2012 meeting. LPB meetings are open to the public. The Board meets at 3:30 pm in the Seattle Municipal Tower, 700 5th Ave, 40th floor, Rm 4060. Download the agenda on the Seattle Historic Preservation Program website. The landmark nomination is also available for download on the HPP website. Concerned about the future of the Globe after the Seattle P-I ceased publication, Seattle City Councilmembers Tim Burgess, Sally Clark and Jean Godden took the bold initiative to submit a landmark nomination, seeking protection for the iconic historic sign. MAin2 is thrilled to see the nomination process go forward. The designation seems like a slam dunk to us.

Update (3/6/12): Councilmembers Burgess, Clark and Godden are holding a press conference about the P-I Globe on Wednesday, March 7, 11:30 am, City Hall, 2nd Floor. The event is open to the public.
