The Highland Park Action Committee (HPAC) has sent a letter of comment regarding the potential fate of the Myers Way Parcels.

June 22, 2016

RE: Myers Way Parcels PMA #4539-4542

Mayor Murray, Seattle City Council and Mr. Daniel Bretzke,

This letter serves as the official comment from Highland Park Action Committee (HPAC) regarding the vacant City of Seattle property located at 9401, 9501, 9600 and 9701 Myers Way, known as the Myers Way Parcel. The Highland Park Action Committee’s (HPAC) purpose is for preserving and improving the neighborhood in accordance with the wishes of the community. HPAC serves and represents approximately 7,000 residents.[1]

As you know, these 33 acres contain wetlands, wildlife habitat, and open space connected to the Hamm Creek watershed and the Duwamish River. In addition, there are several racial and socio-economically diverse neighborhoods surrounding and connected to this area, many of which are unincorporated areas of King County.
