About the Committee

The Pro Parks Levy, approved by Seattle voters in November 2000, will provide $198.2 million to help implement more than a hundred projects and programs planned by citizen groups throughout the city. The Parks and Green Spaces Levy Oversight Committee ("Pro Parks Levy Oversight Committee") will help ensure successful implementation of the projects and programs included in the levy.

The volunteer Oversight Committee is advisory to the Superintendent, Mayor and City Council on issues related to levy fund expenditues. The Committee meets regularly to:
  • Advise on expenditures and allocations for each budget year.
  • Establish criteria and an application process, and make recommendations on allocations for the Acquisition and Development Opportunity Fund.
  • Review expenditure of levy proceeds and interest earnings.
  • Provide annual reports to the Mayor and City Council on progress of expenditures and prepare a mid-point report to Seattle citizens.
  • Provide a final report at the end of the eight-year levy cycle detailing accomplishments and making recommendations for future funding for parks, recreation, open space, boulevards, trails, athletic fields, Woodland Park Zoo and neighborhood park development.
