Seattle Parks and Recreation invites community to final meeting for David Rodgers Park Play Area Renovation

Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) invites the community to review design concepts and play equipment options at the final meeting for the David Rodgers Park play area renovation project on Wednesday, February 7, 2018 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Please join us at an Open House meeting in the Queen Anne Community Center lobby, 1901 1st Ave W. SPR looks forward to working with the community on finalizing the design for the play area and encourages community members of all ages to attend to provide input, as well as to participate in a fun Valentine’s Day craft project.

This project will replace play equipment, provide access for people with disabilities, and improve safety and other features at the David Rodgers Park, 2800 1st Ave W. SPR is removing the play area wood structure at the park and will keep the swings and whirl in place until construction begins for the renovation project.

Funding for this park project is provided by the Seattle Park District. Approved by Seattle voters in 2014, the Seattle Park District provides more than $47 million a year in long-term funding that supports Seattle Parks and Recreation’s maintenance of parklands and facilities, operation of community centers and recreation programs, and development of new neighborhood parks on previously acquired sites.

Crews Restore Power After Outage Affects About 12,900 Homes, Businesses

Crews worked through the night to restore power to approximately 12,900 customers. While crews worked to restore power to an earlier outage, four circuit breakers relayed offline causing a cascading effect and a small substation fire. The sequence of events led to a larger outage. Affected areas in parts of Ballard, Magnolia, and Queen Anne were returned to power by 6:15 a.m. this morning, Saturday, January 20. The cause of the original outage is still being investigated.
