The Lake City Neighborhood Alliance (LCNA) and the North District Council (NDC) are jointly sponsoring a forum on Seattle Proposition 1, proposing the establishment of a Metropolitan Parks District (MPD), to fund Seattle Parks. LCNA and NDC are co-sponsoring this forum to provide sufficient information about MPDs so that voters are fully informed when they cast their ballots in August.
An MPD is governed under WA State law (RCW 35.61) rather than by City ordinance. Here is the link to the RCW if you’d like more information.
The Forum will be held on Monday July 7th from 7 to 8:30 PM at the Lamb of God Lutheran Church, 12509 27th Ave NE (NW corner of NE 125th Street and 27th Ave NE) in the downstairs meeting room. Free parking is available in the church lot or on the street.
Important traffic reminder: because of the closure of 35th Ave NE at Meadowbrook, it is best to travel via Lake City Way NE. Proceed north to NE 123rd Street where there is a Dick’s Drive-In and a left-turn lane onto 30th Ave NE. Turn left again at NE 125th Street. The meeting site, Lamb of God Lutheran Church, will be on your right, two blocks farther at 27th Ave NE.
