Join our Councilman Andrew Lewis to talk about the future investments in Seattle parks.
This fall, the Seattle City Council, sitting as the Metropolitan Park District Board of Directors, will approve the Park District’s next cycle of investments. Approved by Seattle voters in 2014, the Park District levies investment to maintain, operate, and improve parks and related facilities. The Park District is funded by property taxing authority limited to 75 cents per-thousand dollars of assessed value. The authority is outlined in RCW 35.61.
