Now (this Wednesday) is the time to shape the new park at the Greenwood Library. In November the Seattle Parks Department will begin removing the Bleachers’ Tavern and Minimart buildings next to the Greenwood Library, clearing the space for a new park that will be constructed over the coming year. The new park is on a fast track, and decisions about what it will include and feel like will be made over the next two months.
If you are interested in affecting how the park turns out, the meeting announced below is your one best chance! This Wednesday, 6pm at the Phinney Neighborhood Center, park designers will present three concepts at a public meeting and take your comments.
Also please hold November 16 on your calendar, when a “friends of the park” group organized recently by your neighbors will provide an opportunity to review Seattle Parks’ conceptual designs and discuss steps for promoting features of the park best supported. That meeting will be at the Senior Center at 7pm. More info soon!
