Community Center Levy Program


In 1999, Seattle voters approved a renewal of the 1991 Community Centers and Seattle Center Levy, renewing Seattle Parks and Recreations commitment to renovate and expand old facilities and provide new centers. The levy totals $72 million spread over eight years. The nine community center and two neighborhood projects will receive a total of $36 million from the levy.


  • Bring some existing public buildings up to code and make them safe
  • Renovate old spaces to meet todays needs
  • Expand community centers to provide more program space for children and youth, families, seniors and festivals
  • Make our centers accessible to all, including the disabled
  • Build new centers in areas currently under served


The Park Development and Acquisition Communications Plan 2001 outlines the strategies and methods that will be used to involve and inform the public and City staff in Seattle Parks and Recreation improvement and acquisition projects.
