With our mission to create, activate and care for open space and habitat, Groundswell NW is endorsing Proposition 1 on the August 6th ballot. Proposition 1 is the King County 2020-2025 Parks, Recreation, Trails and Open Space replacement Levy. The levy replaces an existing levy passed by 80% of King County Voters in 2014. The levy proposes an increase to those monies, costing property owners $0.1832 per $1,000 of assessed valuation. The levy is widely endorsed by the Seattle Times and the Stranger. By voting yes on Proposition 1, you will be doing a part to support and preserve our remaining open spaces, improve trailhead parking, and refurbish play areas, to name a few.
