Just when the proponents of a private development in Mercerdale Park claim that no other land but parkland is available, the King property has come onto the market. The King property is approximately one acre centrally located in the Town Center just south of McDonald's, between QFC and the old Albertsons (now New Seasons) property.
Community Events, June 2016
We live on an Island. By our very nature, we cannot create any more land. As our area population increases, access to green open spaces becomes more important. There are so many demands for our parks and open spaces — without protection, I fear that one great project after another will chip away at our parks until we have no open space left.
Why did the City Council decide to change the name of the "Parks and Recreation Department" to the "Parks, Arts and Recreation Department" at Saturday's City Council mini-planning session?
Thanks to the city for posting the Town Center 20-Year Visioning Plan online for everyone's review. I was impressed with the thoroughness of the development and design standards and appreciate the amount of time and thoughtfulness that went into this process.
To the many Mercer Islander voters who expressed their support to Protect Our Parks, the Concerned Citizens for Mercer Island Parks say thank you.
