In August a representative of the Maple Knolls Homeowners Association (MKHOA) contacted the Shoreline Parks (PRCS) Director to express interest in donating land to the City of Shoreline. 

The MKHOA is considering options on how to use or dispose of the main portion of Parcel 509630 TR-A.

The property is approximately 1.0 acre adjacent to Kruckeberg Botanic Garden.

There is a chain-link fence separating the two properties. Since their initial contact, staff have spoken with various members of their Board and toured the property with the City’s arborist and representatives of the Kruckeberg Garden Foundation.

The property is fairly steep along the southwestern edge and flat throughout the remainder. It is forested with numerous significant trees. The undergrowth needs tending but is not overwhelmingly infested with invasive plants. It is comparable to most of the urban forest areas in Shoreline Parks. There does appear to be on one or two potentially hazardous trees that would need to be removed in the next year or two.

The proposal was discussed at the Thursday, October 25, Parks Board meeting.

The Parks/RCS/Tree Board voted to accept the overture. A presentation by the Parks Director, Eric Friedli, will be made to the Maple Knolls Association December 11 meeting, after which that group vote upon the motion.

According to an Association Board member the headline of this article does not accurately reflect the discussions conducted at the recent Association Board Meeting.
