East John Street Open Space Development at Summit Slope Park

Updated: March 8, 2018

Thank you, Seattle. This project is complete!

On Monday, March 5, construction fencing came down and we substantially completed the East John Street Enhancement community initiated project. After Seattle City Light completed their project at E. John Street we awarded the construction contract to AGR Contracting Inc. for the 2008 Parks and Green Spaces Levy Opportunity Fund project.  This project enhances the new park and P-patch by adding a bioswale, planting area and providing better pedestrian connections.

Project Description

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. 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.

Generally, this proposal enhances the new park and P-patch by adding a bioswale, planting area and providing better pedestrian connections and is based on the Opportunity Fund application. Please see three design alternatives reviewed at the meeting.
