Seattle Parks and Recreation Annual Report - 2007
This past year marked the beginning of the agreement between Seattle
Parks and Recreation and The Mountaineers Club as a tenant of Building
67. The club will renovate this deteriorating building as its new headquarters
and offer free programming and access to its indoor climbing wall.
We came one step closer in 2007 to realizing the vision of the Sand
Point Historic District. Late in the year, we held three open houses
to discuss with the public our progress in developing concessionaire
relationships with several organizations that will invest in the park
by shoring up existing infrastructure, and offer unique, public access
programming to the public. Organizations such as Cascade Bicycle Club,
Building 11 LLC, Civic Light Opera, Arena Sports, Seattle Sport Courts
Unlimited, and the Sand Point Arts and Cultural Exchange have all submitted
proposals to the City. City Council will consider and vote on these
proposals in 2008.
In December, the Army Corps of Engineers gave the green light to move
forward with the construction of the Pro Parks Levy funded installation
of five ballfields and more than 40 acres of wetlands. Other improvements
will include the removal of a parking lot and restoration of the area
to a wetland and the installation of pedestrian improvements at the
65th Street park entrance. The project is expected to go out to bid
in the spring with construction taking place this summer. Completion
is expected in fall 2009.
