Information and photos from Michelle Hickman, Friends of Sunset Park

One hundred and twenty people attended the first visioning meeting for Sunset Park, held on January 23. At the meeting, there were representatives from the city (photo, right, Dave Buchan from the City of Shoreline speaks to the crowd), the school district, Friends of Sunset Park, and the consultants from the Pomegranate Center hired to facilitate the visioning process.

General information was provided to start the process: How did this process come about? Who were the people involved? What are the parameters of the project? What will the goals and process be, as we go forward?

Milenko Matnaovic, Pomegranate facilitator, solicited ideas from the group. Every person in attendance got the chance to volunteer one idea for the park. The list was quite long, and included all kinds of things, from bathrooms, to nature trails, an amphitheater, athletic field improvements, picnic shelters, p-patch gardens, and adequate parking. Many people talked about the need to be sensitive to environmental concerns.

(On the home page, there's a blurb under the heading "What's New? Community Meeting #2", and within that paragraph is the link).
