title

AN ORDINANCE relating to Seattle Parks and Recreation; authorizing the Superintendent to amend the existing ten-year lease with Seattle Children’s PlayGarden to add a third additional extended term of five years.

body

WHEREAS, Ordinance 122269, passed on October 9, 2006, authorized a ten-year lease with two additional five-year extensions with Seattle Children’s PlayGarden (SCPG) for use of a portion of the Colman Playfield, and required SCPG to renovate the shelter house (“Shelter House”) and construct a new recreational facility (“Garden House”) on site to provide children of all abilities a safe, accessible, and adventurous place to play; and

WHEREAS, SCPG completed the Shelter House and Garden House and is now proposing a project to renovate the playground and has raised the funds needed; and

WHEREAS, SCPG has successfully raised 100 percent of the $420,172 project budget, however $305,550 of that funding is in jeopardy if SCPG is unable to show, via a lease agreement, that the organization has control of the site through 2030; and

WHEREAS, in 2016, after the original term of the lease expired, SCPG exercised its option to implement the first of the two five-year lease extensions; and

WHEREAS, the Department of Parks and Recreation desires to amend the existing lease by adding a third additional extended term of five years, thus allowing SCPG to remain eligible for a $305,550 State grant that the organization was awarded; NOW, THEREFORE,

BE IT ORDAINED BY THE CITY OF SEATTLE AS FOLLOWS:

Section 1.  The Superintendent of Parks and Recreation (“Superintendent”) is authorized to execute, for and on behalf of The City of Seattle (“City”), an amendment to the ten-year lease with SCPG in substantially the form attached to this ordinance as Attachment A, or with such minor additions, modifications, or deletions as the Mayor or said Superintendent deems to be in the best interest of the City.

 

Section 2. This ordinance shall take effect and be in force 30 days after its approval by the Mayor, but if not approved and returned by the Mayor within ten days after presentation, it shall take effect as provided by Seattle Municipal Code Section 1.04.020.
