Seattle Parks and Recreation will host the final meeting for the Lawton Play Area Renovation on Wednesday, January 21, 2010 at Lawton Elementary, 4000 27th Ave. W. The public is encouraged to attend and provide input on the preferred design.
The renovation project, identified in the Parks and Green Spaces Levy will provide new play equipment for children ages 2 -12, site improvements to enhance safety and access improvements to facilitate use by all users.
Parks presented initial concepts for the community to evaluate at the first meeting. Valuable ideas collected from the first meeting were incorporated into the preferred design.
Seattle voters passed the Parks and Green Spaces Levy by a 59% vote in November 2008. The $146 million Levy provides acquisition funding for new neighborhood parks and green spaces and development funding for projects such as improved playfields, reservoir lid parks, renovated playgrounds, community gardens, and safety upgrades at city owned cultural facilities.
