Join the City of Shoreline, the Friends of Sunset Park and your neighbors on Saturday, March 16 from 10:00am-11:30am at the Sunset School Park site located at 17800 10th Avenue NW to review the site conditions following the Shoreline School District’s demolition of the Sunset School Elementary School Building this past January. The Shoreline School Board approved a resolution declaring that the Sunset site was not currently required for school purposes and authorized the temporary surplus of the property. In January, the City Council adopted the Sunset School site as an addendum to the Shoreline School District-City of Shoreline Joint Use Agreement to allow the City to maintain the site as a public park; while still being owned by the Shoreline School District. Sunset closed in 2007 and the community, led by the Friends of Sunset Park, have worked for several years to bring their vision of a park on the site a reality. There is $205,000 in the City’s Capital Improvement Plan budget in 2013-14 to design and construct improvements from the Master Plan at the new park site.
This meeting will provide a list of potential improvements from the Master Site Plan that can be constructed with the limited available budget. The City wants to learn which master plan improvements are important to you as we prepare our design for the construction in this first phase of improvements. Community comments will be collected through comment forms and shared with the Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services Board at their April 25 board meeting where they will discuss the project and make a recommendation for Phase I Improvements.
