You guys always say you don’t get enough notice for these meetings.  Well here you go… 4 days!

I kid of course.  I posted this a month ago.  You now have been reminded.  There will only be one meeting, and the designer will be Pillar Designs.

Hopefully that means we’ll get something a little different this time.

Here’s the official press release:

SEATTLE PARKS HOSTS MEETING FOR DESIGN OF SKATEDOT AT CROWN HILL PARK

Seattle Parks and Recreation will host a public meeting on Monday, August 2, 2010 at the Crown Hill Center, 9250 14th NW, from 6 – 8 p.m. to gather input from the community on the new skatedot that will be developed in Crown Hill Park.

Pillar Design Studios, a professional skatepark designer, will lead the community in this workshop for the design of the skatedot. A skatedot is an approximately 1,500-square-foot area with ”skatable” terrain.

The community participated in planning for this park in early 2006, and at a community meeting in April 2010. The Parks and Green Spaces Levy provides $1.2 million to move this project forward into final design and construction. The schematic design includes a skatedot, a pedestrian circulation path, celebrated entries, open space, areas for play and a newly renovated field. Construction of the site is projected for spring 2011 and anticipated to be complete by fall 2011.

Seattle voters passed the Parks and Green Spaces Levy by a 59% vote in November 2008. The new $146 million Levy provides acquisition funding for new neighborhood parks and green spaces and development funding for projects such as improved playfields, reservoir lid parks, renovated playgrounds, community gardens, and safety upgrades at city owned cultural facilities
