Pro Parks Levy Opportunity Fund
On May 23, 2005, the Pro Parks Levy Oversight
Committee recommended projects to be funded by the second cycle
of the Levy's Opportunity Fund. The Committee's recommendations were
forwarded to Parks and Recreation Superintendent Ken Bounds, who forwarded
his recommendations to the Mayor and City Council. Seattle City Council
unanimously approved the recommended Opportunity Fund projects on September
When Seattle voters approved the $198.2 million Pro Parks Levy in 2000, it included the Opportunity Fund for unforeseen park development projects and land acquisition opportunities. The Pro Parks Levy Citizens Oversight Committee developed criteria for evaluating and choosing Opportunity Fund projects, based on City Council direction in the Levy ordinance.
In general, priority was given to projects that address a park or open space deficiency, and are in areas experiencing growth, particularly in City-designated "urban villages" or in "revitalization areas."
Second funding cycle: 2004-2005
