Arboretum Under Attack?

Larry Sinnott, who is active in several community groups within Seattle, sent us a note informing us that next week's Parks Commission meeting will be an opportunity to speak to the commissioners about the future of the Washington Park Arboretum as it relates to the future of the SR 520 floating bridges. He writes, "This is an extremely important hearing for park advocates tounderstand what is still being proposed and what our Parks Dept is doingto safe-guard our wonderfully rich parks heritage. "

What do you think should be the role of the arboretum in this transportation project? Should Seattle park roads be used as a feeder/on-ramp to the highway? What should happen with the old on-ramps to the R.H. Thompson Expressway?

If you would like to attend, the meeting is at 6pm on Thursday, January 12th at the Parks Headquarters on Dexter.
