information from Seattle Parks
The Department of Parks and Recreation will hold a public meeting Tuesday, September 9, 2014, concerning a proposed land exchange in the West Duwamish Greenbelt. The meeting will begin at 6:30pm at Delridge Community Center, 4501 Delridge Way SW.
Comments from the public will be included with information presented to the City Council’s Parks, Seattle Center, Libraries and Gender Pay Equity Committee at its September 16th meeting.
The land trade involves undeveloped, heavily wooded, open space near 15th Avenue SW and SW Alaska Street (both unopened streets), shown on the map above.
Currently owned park property is shaded green. A long-existing driveway (indicated as blue on the map), serving a single family house at 4707 – 14th Avenue South, crosses the park property. Under the proposed land exchange, the red-marked lots would be traded for the yellow- marked lots, resulting in an exchange of equal area, equal or greater value, and equal or greater usefulness, serving the same user community and the same park purpose.
