More than 100 community members attended the February 3, 2020 Kenmore City Council meeting to decide next steps for the SEPA environmental process of the St. Edward Ballfield Renovation Project.
After hearing comments and discussing options, the Kenmore City Council voted to stop funding on the environmental review process, effectively ending the renovation project.
“The City of Kenmore is committed to balancing financial responsibilities with the community’s facilities needs and protecting our environment, which can sometimes lead to tough decisions about projects,” said Mayor David Baker. “We are grateful to the many people who commented at the February 3 City Council meeting and to everyone who has been interested in this project.”
The City of Kenmore is committed to providing and developing more land for active recreation activities, a goal identified in the City’s Park, Recreation and Open Space (PROS) Plan. The City will continue to explore other sites and partnerships to expand athletic field capacity.
