Friends of Aldercrest Park

Friends of Aldercrest will be meeting on Wednesday, March 17, at 7:30 pm, at the Lake Forest Park Towne Centre Third Place Commons. This meeting is open to all. Bring your thoughts, suggestions, and energy. We will be discussing next steps.

Bring in filled out petitions. Many thanks to those that collected signatures - we now have 277 signatures.

We have presented to the Shoreline City Parks Board and Parks Director, Dick Deal, on Feb 25; and Ballinger Neighborhood Association invited Dick Deal to a neighborhood meeting on March 10 to talk about the parks in the area (or lack of). At that meeting, which was attended by about 15 - 20 people, Dick Deal stressed the need for the community to request from the School District time to allow a city process to happen if we want Aldercrest Annex acquired as a park. He also said that Aldercrest Annex must be included in the city's Parks Recreation and Open Space Plan such that funding can be obtained. Shoreline's Parks Department is beginning the process to update this plan and citizens are encouraged to participate in the public meetings Shoreline City Parks Department will have starting third quarter of this year.

Lake Forest Park City Council adopted their 2010 priorities and work plan during their Feb 25 council meeting. In this plan, the city council has placed at the top of Priority 2 list, "Surplus Schools/Schools for Parks (*Cedarbrook, Aldercrest)". This item was listed as priority 3 on the LFP City Council 2009 adopted priorities and work plan.
