City Council Parks Committee Passes Resolution Supporting Northlake Community Wharf

October 1, 2009

On Tuesday, September 29th, Seattle City Council sub-committee on Parks and Seattle Center passed a resolution declaring their support for the Northlake Community Wharf project. Pretty cool! During the public comment period we had great community support with comments and audience members who included Suzie Burke, representatives from Seattle Parks Foundation, 4Culture, Wallingford Community Center and Fremont Chamber of Commerce.

It was a real tour de force for both the project and the organizations of Lake Union in general.

The resolution is non-binding but it provides a great opportunity and motivation for the city and the county to start talking about a potential transfer of the property. The next step is that the resolution goes in front of the full council for a vote, perhaps as early as next Monday.

There will be a parallel process for a resolution at the County Council that will start soon as well.

Thanks to everyone for their support!

Check out the proceedings at the link below. The public comment is right at the beginning, our presentation starts 67 minutes in.
