LCC Votes to Support Parks, Green Space and Pike Place Market Renovations

At its September 2008 meeting LCC voted unanimously to endorse both the Market Levy, Seattle Proposition 1, and the Parks and Green Spaces Levy, Seattle Proposition 2, on the November ballot.

Prop 1 is a levy to repair and upgrade the Pike Place Market buildings and infrastructure. The Market is the nation’s oldest, continuously run farmer’s market – a Seattle landmark loved by nearly 10 million visitors a year. But time, weather, earthquakes and crowds have taken a toll on the dozen publicly-owned buildings the market. The Market is an irreplaceable public asset and the levy will ensure that it will remain so for decades to come. To get involved or volunteer, visit

Prop 2 is a citizen-led effort to create and improve parks and green spaces in Seattle. Proposed projects include new parks in urban villages, purchase of green spaces, renovation of 23 playgrounds, 4 new sports fields, stream and forest restoration, and many other major improvement projects in parks across the city. Investing in parks and green spaces protects quality of life and provides for an active and healthy lifestyle for all of Seattle, now and in the future.
