Great support for a Park on NW 65th today, plus another chance to show your support this Monday


Lots of neighbors  came together at Cafe’ Bambino this afternoon to show their support for a Park at the corner of NW 65th and 7th Ave NW (the former Nick’s Boat shop site).  The neighborhood has been steadily growing in support around the idea of a Park in their arterial quadrant of East Ballard (8th Ave NW to 3rd Ave NW, NW 65th to Market St) that currently has no Park. The neighborhood group “Friends of  NW 65th” has applied for Parks Levy Opportunity Funding to purchase the property, but they haven’t ranked well. There’s one more chance to improve those rankings at the Open House this Monday April 22nd by showing that there’s an active neighborhood and strong community support behind this Park. Carolyn Swenson and Nicole Bradford will be presenting in support of the acquisition of this property for park space and could use your presence to stand up with them in support.  If you plan to attend please  arrive close to 6pm,  and seek out Carolyn and Nicole.

If you have any questions about the status of this project or if you would like to read the proposal for the lot at NW 65th and 7th that was submitted please let Carolyn know and she can email it to you along with the current ranking.
