The Department of Neighborhood's Neighborhood Matching Fund Large Fund allocates $50,000 for planning and design.
The Parks and Green Spaces Levy Opportunity Fund allocates $500,000 for the construction of this project.
Planning: January - April 2012
Design: May 2012 - Current
Construction: Summer/Fall 2014
Completion: Fall 2014
This project was selected for the first round of Parks and Green Spaces Levy Opportunity Funding. The application received in this community-initiated process is a preliminary concept and the final design may be constrained by the project budget.
The goal of the project is to establish a unique green infrastructure development project transforming the Atlantic City Nursery into a working organic urban farm and demonstration wetlands restoration site.
All projects will go through Park’s public involvement procedure which includes
public meetings and community input. They will also go through an internal Parks
process to ensure the most effective implementation.
The property is the low area that separates the Pritchard Island residential area from the original lake shoreline and the residential area to the west. The property is bordered on the north and south by adjacent park property; Pritchard Island Beach Park (separated by Cloverdale) and Beer Sheva/Atlantic City Park to the south and west.
Seattle Parks and Recreation’s “Atlantic City Nursery” was closed January 2010. The Atlantic City Nursery was included in the Shoreline Management Study.
In November 2010 the Acting Superintendent, Christopher Williams endorsed the Use Plan proposed by the Board of Park Commissioners for Atlantic City Nursery site. Please see attached. The Acting Superintendent supports the urban agriculture use, improving safety and providing for public access for the site.
