Cedarbrook Park update

Thursday, April 22, 2010

Information from George Piano, Sr., Chairman, Cedarbrook Park Coalition

After meeting with board members of the Coalition for the Preservation of Cedarbrook (CPC), the Lake Forest Park Stewardship Foundation issued a formal Proclamation of Support for the Cedarbrook Park Coalition and their efforts to facilitate the acquisition of the old Cedarbrook School Property for future development as an active community park serving both Lake Forest Park and Shoreline residents.

The LFP Stewardship Foundation is a local citizens group dedicated to contributing “to the well-being of our community by fostering awareness, understanding, appreciation, and stewardship of our natural environment; and by preserving and enhancing parks and open spaces.” (from the Stewardship Foundation Mission Statement).

To read the entire Proclamation and to learn more about the LFP Stewardship Foundation, please go to their website.

CPC feels that the support of the Stewardship Foundation adds a strong voice to the local effort to preserve the Cedarbrook property.

Currently, the CPC is working hard to encourage the LFP and Shoreline City Councils to fulfill the commitments the CPC feels were made in Shoreline Resolution No. 292 and Lake Forest Park Resolution No. 1187 to contact the Shoreline School Board and formally request a three year time extension to be used to explore funding sources for the acquisition of the property.

The Cedarbrook Coalition was given until August 2010 to present evidence of formal community support for Cedarbrook Park. The Coalition believes that the above mentioned Resolutions speak strongly of this support.

The Cedarbrook Coalition is asking for residents of Shoreline and Lake Forest Park to contact their city council members and members of the Shoreline School Board directly and ask them to support a three-year time extension to allow CPC to find a way to preserve this open space for our entire community.
