To those who attended the April 11 Seattle Parks meeting about a new park in Morgan Junction, we have some news!
We're a step closer to a new park in Morgan Junction, at the site favored by the community at the public meeting.
Today, the Seattle Monorail Project board voted to sell the 17,081 square foot property at 6401 California Ave SW to Beveridge Investments LLC. The LLC has signed a letter of intent to sell the northern 9,000 square feet of the site to Seattle Parks and Recreation. The primary funding source for the new park (both acquisition and development) is the Pro Parks Levy, approved by Seattle voters in 2000.
Today's press release from Mayor Greg Nickels is on the web:
