What park project would you initiate if awarded up to $1.5 million?

Seattle Parks and Recreation is accepting Proposal Letters for the Opportunity Fund until February 1, 2010.  This is a great opportunity to get involved in improving your Seattle parks. The first round of the Parks and Green Spaces Levy Opportunity Fund ($7 million) is open for community-initiated development projects and land acquisition opportunities. Technical workshops will be held in early January 2010 to assist the community in preparing their proposals.

The nomination process begins with the submittal of a Proposal Letter, which is available now. Proposal Letters and Opportunity Fund Criteria are available online at http://seattle.gov/parks/levy/opportunity.htm.  The forms will also be available at Parks Community Centers, Department of Neighborhoods Service Centers and Seattle Public Library branches starting Monday December 14, 2009.

Here are the press release and an 11 x 17 flyer that provide additional information and announce the technical workshops.
