The Parks Committee has moved forward with its application for a Neighborhood Matching Fund grant, and the process to acquire the property has been met with some delay. While the site has undergone the environmental testing and analysis for the substances commonly used by Seattle City Light at substation sites, it has not yet undergone the testing required for land previously occupied by gas stations.
As we await the outcome of the grant application and the results of the additional environmental testing on the Morningside site, we are delighted to move forward with the Hunter Farms Gathering Place Project to provide public space in the neighborhood. Remember that the first community meeting to vision and plan this new space begins at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, June 11 at Messiah Lutheran Church Fellowship Hall (7050 35th Ave. NE.)
