Help plan Sacajawea park tonight

Posted by Mike on January 31st, 2012

There’s a little-known  bit of green space just south of Sacajawea Elementary School, and tonight there’s a meeting over how to improve both it and the school’s upper playground.

According to the project’s website:

The school’s current play structure and asphalt surface are in extremely poor and unsafe condition, and both the playground and adjacent city park suffer from poor drainage issues from the connecting wetland that is contributory to Thornton Creek.

The meeting, from 6-8 p.m. at the school’s lunchroom, 9501 20th Ave. N.E., “is intended to gather community input and ideas and to discuss where to focus funding, with the wetland area being key.”

More details are available at the project website, but they are promising free pizza and activities for the kids attending!

If you can’t attend the meetings but would like to share your ideas or ask a question, fill out a feedback form. Thanks!
