SECURING OUR FOUNDATION; SHAPING OUR FUTURE
Help shape the future of Shoreline’s aquatics and recreation programs
Shoreline’s Plan for Parks, Recreation & Cultural Services Public Workshop 3:
Shaping the Future of Our Aquatics and Recreation Programs
Tuesday, November 15
Shoreline City Hall Council Chambers
17500 Midvale Ave. N
SHAPING OUR FUTURE depends on our ability to provide new park, recreation, and cultural facilities to meet the needs of a growing, increasingly diverse community.
IT HAS BEEN TWENTY-ONE YEARS since Shoreline incorporated. With a robust school district already in place before incorporation, the City worked with Shoreline School District to develop an agreement to jointly share use of facilities to provide aquatics and recreation programming for Shoreline residents. This agreement has served the community well. However, as the School District and the City grow, the certainty of using the School District’s land and facilities for our aquatics and recreation programming is uncertain
The SHORELINE POOL is a 45-year old aquatic facility reaching the end of its useful life. Operated and maintained by the City, it is located on land owned by the School District.
The SPARTAN RECREATION CENTER is operated by the City in the old Shoreline High School building at the Shoreline Center also on land owned by the School District.
The SHORELINE CENTER is located within the 185th Street Light Rail Station Subarea. As the area redevelops, the City’s future use of it is uncertain as the School District weighs its different priorities and options.
TO PREPARE for this uncertainty, the City is developing a feasibility study for the construction of a new combined aquatic and community center.
JOIN US on Tuesday, November 15 to learn more about why we are considering a combined facility; how and where such a facility may be constructed; what are some future aquatic and recreation program needs driving the feasibility study; and review concepts of what these program spaces could look like.
