Neighborhood support needed Monday evening for skate spot

Correction: An earlier version of this post had an incorrect number date. The meeting is in fact Monday the 28th.

Members of our community will give a presentation to the Seattle Parks Department Levy Oversight Committee Monday evening, January 28th, to make a case for a skate spot at Virgil Flaim Park in our neighborhood.

A funding application was reviewed and scored and this presentation may be one of the last opportunities to make a case for funding for the neighborhood skate spot as it seems the funding may not be approved.

Here is how you can help:

Come to the Levy Oversight Committee meeting tonight, Monday, January 29th.

Visibly show your support for Lake City and a proposed skate spot.

Bring a skateboard, wear a LCW sticker from Elliott Bay, help make our community visible to the decision makers and let them know that a skate spot would bring much-needed life to a park that is often a hangout for chronic public inebriates.

The meeting details from organizers are below:

6:00 - 6:45: Open House: display table for committee members
7:00 - 9:00: Sometime in here, we have a slot for a 3 minute presentation.

Where: Northgate Community Center, 10510 5th Ave NE

Stand with us at our display table during the open house to demonstrate neighborhood support and/or stick around for the presentation and stand with us (with your LCW sticker) during the presentation.
