Dear Mr. Ringgold,


Please consider my comments in the decision to allow a park and ride lot in the single-family zone within Warren G. Magnuson Park.


It was a surprise to me and to other neighbors that the parking area adjacent to the Lake Washington shoreline within the park had not been permitted for the park and ride lot that Parks administration have allowed for the past several years!  While sympathetic to the needs of the construction companies and to Children's' Hospital to have parking available to their employees, there are several concerns that should be addressed if this is to be permitted as a conditional use of our park land.



Thank you for considering my comments.
