This week: Help shape West Seattle playground, park projects

This final day of the month is relatively quiet — nothing major on the calendar. But the first public meetings for two West Seattle park projects – both funded by the Parks and Green Spaces Levy – are happening later this week, so here’s an early reminder: 6:30 pm Wednesday night, Fairmount Playfield playground improvements, for which $170,000 is budgeted, will be discussed at High Point Library (map). Then at 7 pm Thursday night, the new $3 million Westcrest-adjacent parkland created by the now-under-construction covering of West Seattle Reservoir (right) will be the topic at High Point Community Center (map). Lots more this week too – your next chance to get involved with neighborhood groups including the North Delridge Neighborhood Council, Highland Park Improvement Committee and Westwood Neighborhood Council (check out their remodeled website!) – it’s all on the WSB Events calendar (and all the holiday excitement – revving up for the West Seattle Christmas Tree Lighting this Saturday – is on the West Seattle Holidays page).

    What is going on with the Myrtle Reservoir? Has it been turned over to the parks department yet for development? I know that one of the water towers is being repainted, but it seems like the other construction has been done for quite some time now. I am very excited to have a park at this location and hope the money is still in place to build it.

    I have been checking with SPU periodically on that and need to check again. The reservoir waterproofing problem we reported on over the summer definitely set it back – TR

Sorry, comment time is over.
