To the Editor: Moving Museum building might be win-win for all sides

Thursday, January 21, 2010

I have been watching the public comments and letters to the editor concerning the Shoreline Historical Museum that is located in the Ronald School Building on land owned by the Shoreline School District.

I have tried to think of how this problem could be handled creatively so that everyone wins in the end. It seems to me a possible solution would be to move the Ronald School Building to the City Center area off Aurora between 175th and 185th. While it may cost some funds to move the building, it seems to me that a deal could be worked out among the Museum, the School District, and the City of Shoreline. City land could be used for the Museum, the School District would be free of dealing with the Museum, and the Museum could continue unfettered by the School District. Also, the City Center property is close to the school so the Museum could serve the students as it would have otherwise.

I would hope both the Museum folk, the School -District folk and the City would consider moving the building as a win-win for all involved.
