On Tuesday, May 3rd, the Lake City Neighborhood Alliance (LCNA) will be holding a town hall zoom meeting to present their solution for filling the funding gap needed to improve parks, repair buildings, and build a new community center in Lake City.
With the help of the City and State Legislature, the LCNA has secured $11 million and the City has pledged $5 million more for a Lake City Community Center. Additional funding is needed to complete this and other major projects for Seattle. The Seattle Parks and Recreation Commission was formed separately by and with the City Council to provide separate taxing authority, within a limit. A 33 cent tax rate would increase the annual property tax bill on a home that has an assessed value of $880,000 by only $110.48 each year. This would insure that a new full service community center is fully funded and built, as well as fund other projects in Seattle parks.
The zoom meeting will be held between 6-7 PM on the 3rd to hear more about this solution. This is a chance for them to share their vision, answer some questions and to prepare LCNA to support those who will testify before the Seattle Parks and Recreation Commission on May 12th to encourage them to fund their vision. Tim Motzer, retired from Seattle Parks & Recreation has prepared a detailed report on this solution. For a copy, contact him at: firstname.lastname@example.org
