Cedarbrook Park Update

From The Coalition for the Preservation of Cedarbrook

The efforts to save the Cedarbrook School property as a Community Park continue.

At the end of last year, the City of Shoreline, as part of their effort to engage the public in planning for the future, held a series of open houses and Stakeholder Meetings to help update the Parks, Recreation, and Open Space Plan (PROS). As a result of these meetings and the continuing efforts of Cedarbrook Coalition members, the Cedarbrook School property was identified as a property of interest and was included in the revised PROS Plan.



As a result, the City of Shoreline can now engage in official conversations with the Shoreline School Board concerning the acquisition of the property and direct staff to research possible funding sources. This is a huge step in the eventual acquisition and preservation of the property.

In addition, the Cedarbrook Task Force, composed of representatives from the Cities of Shoreline, Lake Forest Park, and the Cedarbrook Coalition continue in their efforts to find creative ways to secure the property for a future park.



Candidate Survey

In an effort to help local residents make informed decisions when voting in the upcoming elections, the Cedarbrook Coalition has prepared a short Candidate Survey to gauge the support of our local candidates for the acquisition and development of the Cedarbrook property as a community park. Candidates from Shoreline, Lake Forest Park, and the Shoreline School Board responded promptly, and the results may be found online . We urge everyone to take the time to read the responses of our candidates and use this information accordingly. Your Vote Counts! We urge all citizens to VOTE ON NOVEMBER 8, 2011.

About Cedarbrook
The Cedarbrook school site is a surplused property belonging to the Shoreline School District. The school building is on Perkins Way in Shoreline. Formerly Cedarbrook elementary school, it was last used well over 25 years ago. During building modernization in the late 80s, it was used as a transition school. Then it was used for special programs, such as Hi-Cap. Finally, it was rented out to a private school. It has been vacant for several years. The play fields border Lake Forest Park and the property boasts a small stream, called Whisper Creek.
