After eleven years, one park bond, two PROS Plans and many park planning and improvement projects coordinated, Maureen Colaizzi, Parks Project Coordinator, will be leaving the City of Shoreline for the City of Kenmore on May 5th.

Maureen says, "I will miss working with the Shoreline community, but am excited for the new challenges ahead."

Hands-on approach
Maureen will begin a new chapter of her career serving the City of Kenmore as a Parks Capital Project Manager, helping to implement Kenmore’s first pedestrian and park bond, Walkways and Waterways.

In her new position, she will directly manage park capital improvement projects. The two projects she will be managing include providing beach access at Log Boom Park and developing a new park at Squire’s Landing.

I have learned so much here and have worked with great City Staff, Council and members of this community to make significant improvements to Shoreline’s Parks and Open Spaces. 
The knowledge I have gained here will help guide me in my new endeavors.

She began at the City of Shoreline in 2006. With a team of other staff, she helped to implement Shoreline’s first park bond projects.

Maureen helped create a vision for Shoreline’s future park system by helping to complete two Parks, Recreation and Open Space (PROS) Plans in 2011 and 2017.

I am very fortunate to have had the opportunity to help improve Shoreline’s urban forests by helping to create Shoreline’s Urban Forest Strategic Plan, several park vegetation management plans and a habitat restoration program at Richmond Beach Saltwater Park.

She helped design and manage construction for Echo Lake Park Improvements, Sunset School Park, Northcrest Park playground, both Community Gardens and Off-Leash Dog Areas.

Neighborhood leaders appreciated her for her ability to listen and her collaboration style.
