Seattle Parks and Recreation 2017 Development Plan Citywide Meeting - Bitter Lake
Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) manages a 6,410-acre park system; with the system comprising about 11% of the City’s land area. In 2016 Seattle’s population was 686,800 and it is expected to grow by over 120,000 new residents over the next 20 years.
SPR will be discussing key questions and issues with the public over the next few months and will be coming back to the Park Board with staff recommendations based upon public input, legal requirements and broad city goals on these key issues. Citywide meetings will be hosted by SPR these next few months to share the proposed 2017 Development Plan and Gap Analysis Update and to gather input from the community. Groundswell NW encourages all who are concerned with the future of parks, open space and habitat in Seattle to participate in one of these citywide meetings.
