City Council approves acquisition of property for a new North Precinct Police Station
On Dec. 16, 2013, the City Council approved the legislation authorizing the acquisition of three parcels – located at the southeast corner of Aurora Avenue North and North 130th Street – for a new North Precinct Police Station. The City of Seattle intends to acquire ownership of this property using its power of eminent domain (condemnation) for public use. Such an action keeps the project on track and is favorable to the property sellers as well because it allows them additional time to reinvest the money they receive from the sale before capital gains taxes are due.
