Reminder: Meeting Thursday on possible parks levy

by | Jan 28, 2014

Seattle Parks and Recreation is looking at sponsoring a new levy in August to fund more facilities, services and programs. They’ve already held two community meetings; the third is this Thursday at 7:30 p.m. at the Bitter Lake Community Center, 13035 Linden Ave. N.

Parks is looking at more funding for Woodland Park Zoo and Seattle Aquarium, more maintenance funds, Park Rangers to improve park safety, increased funding to keep community centers open longer hours, more P-patches, and acquiring more land for future parks.

Meeting participants will help Parks staff determine how to prioritize the list of possibilities, what exactly should be on the ballot, and what tax mechanism should fund it.
