(May WSB photo of 48th/Charlestown site)
The Seattle City Council’s Parks and Neighborhoods Committee, chaired by Councilmember Sally Bagshaw, has just OK’d the plan for the city to buy the greenspace at 48th/Charlestown with money including part of the second round of spending from the Parks and Green Spaces Levy‘s Opportunity Fund. We first reported the proposal back in May; here’s the project list that went to the committee today, with a full-council vote next. No final price tags are attached, but $400,000 was mentioned for this site back in May, and Parks staffers told councilmembers today that matching funds will be available to help with final purchase prices for this and other Opportunity Fund acquisitions.
Sorry, comment time is over.
