Green Legacy For All Levy and Quarterly Round Robin on Neighborhood Projects and Issues
With the Pro-Parks Levy expiring in 2008, Seattle will lose a significant source of funding for parks and open space projects. A coalition of civic organizations has formed to advocate for continued funding for Seattle’s green spaces. More than just parks, the green infrastructure approach looks at how to make the whole city more humane, healthy and ecologically-responsive. Learn about the plans from coalition members.
The November meeting is also the Federation’s quarterly round robin and your opportunity to brief our citywide membership on projects and issues that your community council or organization is working on. Is there pending legislation you are following? Do you have issues with the work of any of the city’s departments or public officials? Do you have projects underway that other communities can learn from? The Round Robin is a great networking opportunity and a chance to generate support from the Federation and its member organizations for the important work you are doing.
If you have informational materials you would like distributed at the meeting, please email electronic copies or links to Jeannie Hale at email@example.com.
