COUNCIL WILL ACT ON NEXT STEP FOR PARKS LEVY
Proposed legislation would establish Parks and Green Spaces Levy Citizens’ Advisory Committee

SEATTLE – On Monday, April 21, 2 p.m., the Full Council will take action on the next step in the process of deciding whether to renew a parks levy. President Richard Conlin, and Councilmembers Tom Rasmussen, Tim Burgess, Bruce Harrell, Jean Godden, Sally Clark and Nick Licata are sponsoring legislation to create the Parks and Green Spaces Levy Citizens’ Advisory Committee. If approved, the Committee would issue a report by June 30, 2008, advising the Council on the pros and cons of asking voters to renew a parks levy on November’s ballot. As part of that process, the Committee would analyze specific parks projects that could be covered by renewal of the levy.

The current Pro Parks Levy, approved by voters in 2000, will expire this year. The Levy provided for the acquisition of 42 acres of open space, including 15 new neighborhood parks, and funded 70 park development projects, including habitat restoration, athletic field improvements, and city trails. A poll released earlier this month showed that sixty-seven percent of Seattleites favor a renewal of the Pro Parks Levy.

What: Full Council action on whether to establish Parks and Green Spaces Levy Citizens’ Advisory Committee to advise on the renewal of the parks levy
Where: Council Chambers, City Hall, 600 Fourth Avenue, Second Floor
When: Monday, April 21, 2 p.m.

Substitute Resolution 31055
