Story

King County Councilmember Jeanne Kohl-Welles issued the following statement Tuesday after the Council approved legislation she co-sponsored that will turn City Hall Park over to King County in exchange for several pieces of County owned property being turned over to the City of Seattle:

This action begins a new day of stewardship for this long-neglected space and I hope nearby residents, businesses, visitors, courthouse users and workers will join us in reimagining this vital area. By working together, we will ensure this space is inclusive, recreational and safe, and we can make certain the community knows that any movement toward making this space anything but open will be subject to robust public engagement. I appreciate the collaboration of Executive Constantine and Mayor Durkan in making this change a reality.”
