Community invited to participate in Victor Steinbrueck Park renovation project

Seattle Parks and Recreation invites the community to participate in the Victor Steinbrueck Park renovation project by providing input on Tues. October 4, 2016 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the Waterfront Space, 1400 Western Ave. Seattle, 98101. This meeting is an opportunity to learn about the project, review design options and provide input on the renovation.  Seattle Parks and Recreation staff and Walker Macy, design consultant will present the proposed design options, gather input and answer questions.  lmerc52011

The 2008 Parks and Green Spaces Levy allocates funding to improve Victor Steinbrueck Park public safety including but not limited to improving sight lines into the park, renovating seating, renovating the former children’s play area, improving and expanding lighting, and upgrading landscaping.  In addition, the park partially sites atop a privately owned parking garage. The membrane between the westerly portion of the park and the parking garage below is failing.  A complete replacement of the membrane will be necessary as part of the renovation.

Seattle Parks and Recreation’s design team will continue to work with the community to prioritize park improvements and anticipates presenting a final design for the park in early 2017. Seattle Parks and Recreation has been and will continue to be engaging organizations including the Chief Seattle Club, the Friends of Market, surrounding residents and business and homeless advocates regarding the park renovation. We encourage the community and park users to attend and participate in the design process.
