Local Parks grants help protect these symbols of vibrant communities, providing places for families to gather and play and promoting a healthy and active lifestyle in an era when people spend increasing amounts of their time inside. The WWRP is the largest source of local parks funding in Washington, helping communities fund the acquisition, development, and renovation of vital recreation areas and green spaces.
The City purchased the property in 2012, and submitted this project under a Waiver of Retro-activity. The original appraisal done at the time of the purchase was found to not comply with RCO requirements upon review, and the review appraiser completed a new appraisal as described in the RCO manual. City Staff removed the barn on site and removed blackberries. Due to a change in standards and additional costs from the appraisal we elected not to fence the storm water facility on the site.
