“Seattle must not overlook the importance of preserving open spaces in an urban landscape that’s been called the fastest growing big city in the country, according to The Seattle Times (5/25/17). We prefer park spaces for people and wildlife. There is so little of this habitat left. Let Fort Lawton be annexed into Discovery Park and go from there.
Having said that, if there must be repurposing of Fort Lawton, let this land serve children by building a high school, as suggested in an editorial by Brier Dudley (The Seattle Times; 6/7/17).”
