Acquisition Projects

The Acquisition category includes acquisition of two types of properties and is thus divided into two sub-categories: Neighborhood Park Acquisition and Green Space Acquisition.

Neighborhood Park Acquisition
This subcategory includes the acquisition of properties in areas that have been identified in the Parks and Recreation 2006 Development Plan and Gap Analysis as being deficient relative to the City's comprehensive plan goals. It is anticipated that the acquisition funding provided by the levy will be supplemented by funding from other sources. However, funding may still prove to be insufficient to complete acquisitions in all of the locations listed below:

12th Avenue Urban Center Village
48th Ave SW & SW Charlestown OPP
Baker Park Expansion OPP This acquisition is complete!  LB This acquisition is complete!
Ballard Hub Urban Village / 14th Ave NW
Beach Drive area northwest of Morgan Junction *
Belltown Urban Center Village

Westwood-Highland Residential Urban Village

* Parks is not currently exploring options for new parks at the Beach Drive northwest of Morgan Junction and Ravenna Residential Urban Village areas. Relatively low populations and limited acquisition opportunities make these two areas a lower priority than other areas identified in the Levy.
