The Showbox Is Still Not Saved - You Can Help!
The Showbox is a designated City of Seattle Landmark, but it is still not saved! Historic Seattle needs YOU to help change that. Urge the Landmarks Preservation Board to place “controls” on the property. Controls are a part of the landmarking process and describe the protections to the physical elements of the building. Without controls, The Showbox can be torn down. Send your comments to Sarah Sodt, the City’s historic preservation officer, at firstname.lastname@example.org by December 6 or plan to attend the LPB meeting scheduled for December 18 to provide your comments in person.
Our friends over at Seattle Theatre Group (STG) have partnered with Historic Seattle in efforts to purchase The Showbox. How cool is that? If accepted this will ensure that The Showbox will continue to be a beacon and landmark for Seattle music and culture for many years to come. There are various ways you can help and be heard. Donate, send a message to Sarah Sodt or represent with a Save The Showbox t-shirt!
"Saving The Showbox is a marathon, not a sprint. Thank you for running with us!"
