Congratulations!

September 24, 2015

Congratulations one and all for the extremely successful 3rd public meeting which drew 65 people.  All the work in community outreach really paid off as the outreach and the outstanding work of the Berger Group resulted in a proposal that offered excellence in park opportunities  for virtually everyone in the community.

This was  a clear example of utilizing the Department of Neighborhood’s small and simple grant process to enable the neighborhood community to take the lead in a project  of regional significance.  This will be a key link in  building the emerald necklace of pathways  for Elliott Bay.

Hip Hip Hooray!!

Preferred Plan is Presented at Final Public Meeting
 
Thanks to the community for a great turn-out at our final public meeting! Jason and Todd, of the Berger Partnership, presented the preferred conceptual design for Smith Cove Park. All of the comments from this meeting and from our website, www.SeattleSmithCovePark.org will be saved and submitted to Seattle Parks along with the conceptual design. This process would not have been possible without all of the tremendous public support and input.
 

Watch for the posting of the preferred plan on our website in the near future and we will have a video of the meeting very soon.

Magnolia Trail Community Meeting – 9/22/15 7pm Our Lady of Fatima Church

September 21, 2015

Come to a public meeting to hear and comment on a recently completed study about the feasibility of building a walk/bike trail  that would fill a crucial missing link in the emerald necklace of parks and trails around Elliott Bay. This trail will  connect West Galer street (near secret beach at the end of 32nd ave. west) with West Marina Place near Elliott Bay Marina. This link will give Magnolia residents easy access to the beautiful waterfront around the marina.

The trail will offer a much quicker, safer way to walk or bike to the soon-to-be created Smith Cove Park as well as to the coming waterfront park in downtown Seattle. The meeting is on Tuesday, September 22 from 7 p.m. at Our Lady of Fatima parish at 3218 W. Barrett St.

SvR Design will be talking about their recently completed study. Please come and forward this email to your friends and neighbors. We need your support to make this happen.

The Friends of Smith Cove Park invite YOU and your neighbors to participate in the presentation of a draft concept plan (preferred plan) for Smith Cove Park!
You and your communities have hosted and attended public meetings, submitted on-line comments and support, and helped shape this future signature park of Seattle, thanks to grant funding from the Seattle Department of Neighborhood.

Community-based planning was instrumental in the conceptual design process for this park, and the Friends along with Berger Partnership (hired landscape architect) would like to describe the design process, present the results of community input, and roll out the preferred plan for Smith Cove. Public meetings have yielded vital community feedback that supports this preferred plan, which includes park features and uses such as a hand-carried boat launch, beach access, multi-sport playfield, sand area for volleyball, family discovery and play areas, improved access and circulation, and much, much more!

Since January, you and your neighbors, with the help of City funding and support, have been involved and shared your wishes, dreams and ideas for a new and improved Smith Cove park and playfield. Please come to our last public meeting and see what we’ve shaped! Whether you can attend or not, go to www.seattlesmithcovepark.org for more information and to view the preferred plan (posted after this last public meeting), register your name and provide public comment (that will be seen and counted by the City).

LAST PUBLIC MEETING: SEPTEMBER 21, 2015, 7:00 PM
