On Thursday, April 28, the Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services/ Tree Board will hold a public hearing on allowing special event service of wine and beer at Kruckeberg Botanic Garden. The proposal under consideration amends Shoreline Municipal Code (SMC) 8.12.500 by adding Kruckeberg Botanic Garden to the list of park facility locations where alcohol is permitted.
Prior to 2012, the only City park facility where alcohol was permitted was indoors at the Richmond Highland Recreation Center. Council amended the Code in 2012 to include the Terrace at Richmond Beach Saltwater Park and the Amphitheater at Cromwell Park.
Kruckeberg Botanic Garden is consistent with the criteria used in 2012 in selecting appropriate sights to permit alcohol. The Garden is easily contained and controlled, limiting impacts on other park patrons or surrounding neighbors. In order to have alcohol in any of the designated park locations, individuals must first obtain a special alcohol permit, which is subject to approval by the Park Director.
The public hearing will begin at 7:00pm on Thursday, April 28, in Shoreline City Hall Room 303.
