PARKS LEVY COMMITTEE TAKES PUBLIC TESTIMONY ON PROPOSALS

Seattle On Tuesday, June 17 at 5:30 p.m. in the Lopez Room at Seattle Center, the Councils Parks and Green Spaces Levy Citizens Advisory Committee will take public testimony on preliminary proposals being considered by the committee for a potential fall 2008 levy ballot. Community members will have the opportunity between 5:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. to comment on levy proposals for parks, open space, boulevards, trails, green infrastructure and recreation projects.

Over the past eight years, Seattles system of parks, recreation and open space have been funded by two voter-approved levies that have expired, or will expire by the end of this year. The 1999 Community Center Levy and the 2000 ProParks levy have funded major parks and open space improvements, and leveraged additional funds to support Seattle parks.

The Parks Levy Citizens Advisory Committee appointed in mid-April has held numerous meetings, including four community outreach meetings to put together proposals for a renewed parks levy, said Councilmember Tom Rasmussen. As they approach the conclusion of their work, I strongly encourage people from every neighborhood across the city to review and comment on the committees preliminary proposals.

Parks and Green Spaces Levy Committee Public Testimony:

Tuesday, June 17, 2008 5:30 6:30 p.m.
Lopez Room (Part of the Northwest Rooms)
Seattle Center
305 Harrison Street
Seattle, WA 98109
