Park Levy Citizen Advisory Committee June 2

From Ron Angeles at the Department of Neighborhoods:

Park Levy Citizen Advisory Committee Sets Additional Community Meeting

A citizen committee appointed by the Seattle City Council to advise the Council on the potential to place a park levy on the fall 2008 ballot will hold a community meeting Monday, June 2 in West Seattle, in addition to the three community meetings held during the month of May.
This meeting will provide residents with an opportunity to comment on the potential creation of a ballot initiative to fund parks, open space, boulevards, trails, green infrastructure and recreation projects.

Over the past eight years, Seattle’s system of parks, recreation and open space have been funded by two voter-approved levies that have expired, or will expire by the end of this year. The 1999 Community Center Levy and the 2000 ProParks levy have funded major parks and open space improvements, and leveraged additional funds to support Seattle parks.

"Seattle citizens treasure their parks and open spaces. We’ve asked a broad-based group of citizens to help us explore the possibility of putting a new levy on the ballot," said Councilmember Tom Rasmussen. "I strongly encourage residents from every neighborhood across the city to come out and share their ideas with the committee."

Monday, June 2, 2008 – 7:00 – 9:30 p.m.
