Thank you neighbors!

Many thanks to neighbors who set aside their Saturday morning to visit Manor Park and give their input at the public meeting.  Site Workshop presented three plans for the park and asked people to divide into groups to discuss and comment on the plans, choosing  a preferred plan (or creating a hybrid).  We will post these plans in the coming days and hope we will continue to receive comments from those unable to attend yesterday’s meeting.

[Update, 12 April, 2011: More info from Meeting #2 – the three draft plans, worksheets from participants, and more – is now available here. Take a look, and feel free to comment here.]

“Behind the Fence” Tour

  Ever wondered what’s behind the fencing at Magnolia Manor Park?  Here’s your chance. Seattle Public Utilities will make the site available this Saturday, April 9 at 9 am.  Because this is a secured area you will need to be with the tour to enter through the secure gate on 27th Avenue West.

Where: 3489 27th Avenue West

When: Tour leaves promptly at 9am, so be there at 8:50.  If an additional tour is needed it will depart at 9:15.

Why : Answer the questions you’ve long held about what the property looks like.  What are the views like?  How steep is that slope? 

 Just after the tour be sure to go to the Draft Designs Workshop at Magnolia Presbyterian Church at 10am.  Neighbors will have an opportunity at this meeting to comment on Site Workshop’s three draft plans  for the park.
