Choose your preferred design for Hing Hay Park at upcoming public meeting
Seattle Parks and Recreation invites you to the second public meeting for the Hing Hay Park expansion project on Tuesday, Jan. 21, 6-7:30 p.m. at the International District/Chinatown Community Center (719 8th Ave. S, 98104). The community is encouraged to be part of the process and provide input on the project.
This meeting gives the community an opportunity to see the expanded Hing Hay park design concepts and provide feedback. Seattle Parks and the design team of SvR (a local firm) and Turenscape (a Beijing-based firm) will be at the meeting to discuss the project and answer questions.
The Hing Hay Park project increases the existing park (423 Maynard Ave. S) to include the site of the current post office (414 6th Ave. S). The United States Postal Service will continue to lease the site while it conducts its own public process to relocate within the Chinatown International District.
The 2008 Parks and Green Spaces Levy allocates $3 million to plan, design and construct the park.
For each major development or renovation project, Seattle Parks and Recreation typically holds three meetings to ensure community involvement. The third and final public meeting will be held Tuesday, Feb. 25. Also as part of this project, Seattle Parks will survey neighbors and conduct outreach at local events and meetings.
