City Hall

Ask and You Shall Receive

By Erica C. Barnett April 15, 2010

Earlier this week, I wrote about the apparent impossibility of getting a P-Patch plot in my neighborhood (I've been on the waiting list for more than a year), and suggested that Sound Transit might donate some of the vacant lots it owns along the light-rail line in Southeast Seattle for that purpose.

Well, this just in, via the Rainier Valley Post: The city is working to come up with sites for new P-Patches in 21 underserved "priority areas," four of which are along the light-rail route. (North Beacon Hill and Rainier Beach are particularly underserved, with just a few lonely plots on the outskirts of the former and just one "possible site" identified in the latter.

The new P-Patches will be funded through the Parks and Green Spaces Levy, and the city is taking suggestions for locations at its web site.
