The Thornton Creek Alliance reports:
Meadowbrook Pond will be undergoing big changes very soon! Join Seattle Public Utilities for a Question & Answer Drop-In Session this Saturday, June 16th, 10am – Noon, near the 36th Ave NE Entrance (at NE 107th). SPU, “Meadowbrook Pond will be CLOSED late-July – September for dredging and to make improvements to restore its water quality benefits and increase the ease and safety of maintenance.” SPU plans to cut down 50-60 trees, build new 15-ft wide impervious asphalt roads, rip out (destroy) mature native vegetation (replacing with tiny gallon starts, etc). But is all of this really necessary? Are SPU’s rushed plans the smartest way to achieve their goals? Come find out on Saturday!
