Latest Cheasty Bike Park Update

Yesterday, Publicola reported the following:

The council also put off (for one week) legislation that would allo8475634_origcate $100,000 in city money (out of an estimated cost of $750,000) to a new mountain bike park in Southeast Seattle’s Cheasty Greenspace, a long, narrow greenbelt that runs between Columbia City and Beacon Hill. Some neighborhood residents have argued that the greenbelt should be preserved as natural space and wildlife habitat. Proponents say it would provide recreation and education to residents of the surrounding neighborhoods, and provide a new connection between Columbia City and Beacon Hill.

Council member Sally Bagshaw said that even if the council does approve the legislation, “that isn’t a guarantee that it’s going in” to the city budget.
