There was an informational meeting held by KingÂ County on June 13th,Â 2012 to discuss the CSO (combined sewer overflow) and it’s relationship to Smith Cove Park.
The presentation that wasÂ made by King County at that meeting differed from their previous presentations to the community and the audience at the meeting reacted negatively.Â
Of particular concern to theÂ community members present were the massing of the facility and the fencingÂ surrounding it.
Information from King County about the CSO projectÂ can be found here.
Community members have formedÂ “The Friends of Smith Cove Park” with the goal of combining theÂ WestÂ Yard and Smith Cove Park into aÂ single park.Â ThisÂ group recently applied for funds from the Park and Greenspace Opportunity Fund.
