Mayor Murray commends Seattle City Councilmembers for their support of Seattle Park District

Mayor Murray today issued the following statement of gratitude to members of the Seattle City Council, following their passage of Murray’s Seattle Park District proposal out of committee:

“I want to thank my colleagues at the Seattle City Council for their support of the Seattle Park District proposal. Today’s committee vote takes us one step closer to placing a robust package on the ballot.

Seattle’s park system is a tremendous resource for the people of this great city and this funding plan will maintain and preserve our parks for years to come. Providing a dedicated and sustainable funding source for our parks is our best opportunity to take the park legacy that has been entrusted to us and pass it on to future generations to enjoy as we do today.”

The Full Council is expected to take final action on this proposal on Monday, April 28.
