Volunteer, Steering Committee member, and Wallingford resident Geoff Braden talks with an attendee about the Northlake Community Wharf at the Opportunity Fund Open House.

CWB Executive Director Betsy Davis gives a two-minute presentation about Northlake Community Wharf to the Opportunity Fund Oversight Committee.

On Monday, June 14th, The Center for Wooden Boats advocated for the Northlake Community Wharf project to the Seattle Parks and Rec. Department’s Oversight Committee in charge of the Parks and Green Spaces Levy Opportunity Fund. The fund “provides funding only for community initiated park development or property acquisition projects. Parks will award up to $7 million to projects in this first funding cycle of the Opportunity Fund.” Find more information about the Opportunity Fund here: http://www.seattle.gov/Parks/levy/opportunity.htm.

Applicants were allowed to present in an open house format for 45 minutes and then give a 2-minute presentation to the Oversight Committee who will pass their recommendations on to the mayor.
