Seattle Parks and Recreation is hosting the third meeting for the Othello Playground Safety and Lighting Improvement project on Monday, November 8, 2010 from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. at Van Asselt Community Center, 2820 S. Myrtle Street.
At this meeting the team will present preferred schematic designs for the project. Othello Park is located at 4351 S Othello St. The information gathered from the community contributed to creating this design. The public is encouraged to attend and to provide additional feedback on how to make this park more useful for this diverse Southeast Seattle community. The renovation project is identified in the Parks and Green Spaces Levy.
Seattle voters passed the Parks and Green Spaces Levy in November 2008. The new $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.
For more information, please contact Rick Nishi, Parks and Green Spaces Levy Manager, 206-733-9319 or firstname.lastname@example.org or visit http://seattle.gov/parks/projects/othello/playground.htm.
