Roosevelt Reservoir Preliminary Information & Draft Site Concept

At the most recent General meeting Jon Sloan, Resident, put forth this initial conceptual proposal for a possible use for the Roosevelt Reservoir.

“The 17-acre Roosevelt Reservoir property is being studied by the Seattle Public Utilities (SPU) Department to determine whether it can be decommissioned as a potable water supply. If the study determines that the reservoir can in fact be decommissioned, the city will avoid the very high cost of burying the reservoir within a below-ground vault.
In anticipation of the possible decommissioning, several community members in the Roosevelt, Ravenna, Wedgewood and Maple Leaf neighborhoods have organized a visioning team that will advocate a bold new use for the property. The new use will include a variety of recreational activities, including aquatics, ice-sports, soccer, indoor lacrosse, gymnastics, and field hockey. The plan would also include residential, commercial, hotel and open space uses.
Because of it’s location, decision makers will be compelled to require a significant amount of residential density to support light-rail ridership goals. In fact, the visioning team has already heard from the Parks Department that it’s unlikely that the site will be converted to a park — higher-density residential development is very likely.
As such, our objective will be to present an attractive alternative to the high-density proposals that might be favored by the City. The team’s preferred alternative, which will include significant community benefits, will be outlined in a Visioning Plan that will be used to secure public, private and nonprofit sector support.”

Please join the discussion about this concept on our Facebook Page.
