City Council Parks, Seattle Center, Libraries, & Gender Pay Equity Committee Meeting
Tuesday Dec 2, 9:30 a.m.
City Hall Council Chamber, 600 4th Ave, 2nd floor
Please join the EBCA next Tuesday to show your support for the 14th Ave NW Park. Item 6 in the agenda for this City Council meeting will include a discussion and possible vote relating to transferring partial jurisdiction over a portion of 14th Ave NW between NW 59th and NW 61st from SDOT to the Parks Dept for neighborhood park purposes. The discussion will also be whether to approve re-allocation of funding in the 2008 Parks and Green Spaces levy from the acquisition category to development category for a Ballard Urban Village Park.
Your attendance and voice of support for the 14th Ave NW Park could have a positive influence on City Council’s decision. If City Council votes YES on this day, then the Parks Dept will be able to continue forward with design and have the funding from the levy available when needed to go out for bid on construction. A Yes vote will be a very critical milestone in the progress of the 14th Ave NW Park that the East Ballard community has been striving toward for almost 10 years!
