Seattle Parks and Recreation will host a meeting for the Othello Playground Safety and Lighting Improvement project on Monday, September 20, 2010 from 7 – 8:30 p.m. at Van Asselt Community Center located at 2820 S. Myrtle Street.
At this meeting, the design team will present schematic designs for the project. The information gathered at the first meeting in May and at the August Othello Park International Music and Art Festival contributed to creating these design concepts. The public is encouraged to attend and to provide additional feedback on how to make this park more useful for the diverse community of Southeast Seattle. The renovation project is identified in the Parks and Green Spaces Levy.
Seattle voters passed the Parks and Green Spaces Levy by a 59% vote 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
