The Navy Chapel and Forest are in the center of this plan

Fircrest Master Plan Community Meeting, Wednesday Night, May 4, 2022, 6-7:30pm

The meeting will be held virtually via Zoom. The meeting link is:

Contact Larry Covey, Capital Projects Manager Department of Social and Health Services at if you have any questions.

The master plan as drafted completely surrounds the historic and recently landmarked Navy Chapel and surrounding forest.

The Shoreline Preservation Society, which shepherded the landmark process, in understandably concerned about the future of the Chapel.

So now, DSHS and many other “Stakeholders” are pushing hard to build huge new facilities at Fircrest, and even eventually huge housing developments as well. 
Shiny new facilities may indeed be needed to replace aging medical facilities there, however many in our community want these to be “designed around the trees” to maintain their historic and environmental value they provide for our community and could continue to provide to the disabled residents of Fircrest. 

So, is the Landmarked Chapel and Forest truly protected? The answer still remains to be answered by whatever is finally permitted by the City of Shoreline and Washington State decision makers.

I never got to speak at the master plan meeting. Why do we have to have office buildings on the south east part of the fircrest campus? Why can’t we have gardens that people could visit . We have enough buildings and ground blacktopped. All I hear about is climate change and then it’s build some buildings. And blacktop more ground. I live on NE 150 th and when I have a appt at 8.00 am it sometimes take me 10 or 15 minutes to back out onto the street the traffic is bad most of the time.
