Community invited to learn about future of Green Lake Small Craft Center

Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) invites the community to learn about the design process for potential future improvements to the Green Lake Small Craft Center on Tuesday, June 26, 2018 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Please join us at Green Lake Community Center, 7201 E Green Lake Dr. N to meet the design team (Schacht | Aslani Architects), learn about the site opportunities and constrains, and offer input on what a new small craft center might look like at Green Lake.

Schacht | Aslani Architects completed a study of the existing building and programming needs in 2017 with funding from the Seattle Park District Major Projects Challenge Fund. They will present this background work as the basis for moving forward. The Seattle Department of Neighborhoods’ Neighborhood Matching Fund Program is funding the current planning project through the first phase of design. The Rowing Advisory Council is actively seeking additional funding from the Seattle Park District Major Projects Challenge Fund, State grants, and private fundraising for the subsequent design phases and construction.

The Major Projects Challenge Fund is a Seattle Park District funding initiative that provides a funding match to a community-initiated “major project” that is not otherwise covered by an identified SPR funding source. Approved by Seattle voters in 2014, the Seattle Park District provides more than $47 million a year in long-term funding to Seattle Parks and Recreation for maintenance of parklands and facilities, operation of community centers and recreation programs, and development of new neighborhood parks on previously acquired sites.
