The Seattle Board of Park Commissioners will hold its regular meeting at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, March 27, in the Kenneth R. Bounds Park Board Room at 100 Dexter Ave. N, in Denny Park at the corner of Dexter and Denny. The following items are on the agenda for the March 27 meeting:
Commissioner Keith’s Last Meeting. The Park Board will be celebrating the contributions of Commissioner Keith. Commissioner Keith has played an important role on the Park Board for the last six years and worked with the department through some crucial decisions.
PI Globe Briefing. Michael Shiosaki, Director of Planning and Development for Seattle Parks and Recreation, will brief the Park Board on a request to locate the P-I Globe in Myrtle Edwards Park. Parks staff may come back to the Park Board for a recommendation at a later time.
Seattle’s Comprehensive Plan. Brennon Staley, Department of Planning and Development, and David Graves, Seattle Parks and Recreation, will present the vision for the City’s Comprehensive Plan. The Comprehensive Plan is a 20-year vision and roadmap for Seattle’s future. It guides important City decisions on where growth (jobs and housing) occurs, how to improve our transportation system, and where investment in utilities, capital facilities, and services will be needed. The comprehensive plan is the framework for most of Seattle’s big-picture decisions on how to grow while preserving and improving our neighborhoods. This presentation will focus on how city staff are working to ensure integration of Seattle Parks and Recreation’s Legacy Plan with the city-wide Comprehensive Plan.
