Community Participation

Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) has determined that to develop an existing gravel parking lot into a public park does not have probable significant adverse impact on the environment. An environmental impact statement is not required under RCW 43.21C.030(2)(c). This decision was made after review of a completed environmental checklist and other information on file with SPR. This information is available to the public on request. The Determination of Non-Significance was issued May 12, 2022.
