Councilmember Godden’s Statement on Creating a New Park in the Roosevelt Neighborhood

SEATTLECouncilmember Jean Godden today issued the following statement in response to Council’s vote to acquire property at 1322 NE 65th Street to create a new park in the Roosevelt neighborhood:

“Today is a good day for Roosevelt.  Legislation passed today is another step toward building a livable neighborhood that welcomes new residents and, with this small open space, offers breathing room and respite for residents and families.

“I’m so pleased Mayor Murray took the extra time needed to develop a balanced approach, recognizing the need for and working toward more affordable housing while acquiring new open space – a high priority for neighbors.

“While this is a big step forward, it is just one step on a long pathway toward making Roosevelt a dense, livable and affordable neighborhood that is welcoming to all.

“Overall: a good day for Roosevelt and Ravenna neighbors.”
