WHEREAS, the 2014-2019 Adopted Capital Improvement Plan Budget included $270,000 of REET I funding in the Seattle Center Long Range Investment Plan Project (S0703)  in Seattle Center within the Campuswide Improvements and Repairs Budget Control Level; and

WHEREAS, this funding was intended to develop a Memorial Stadium Action Plan; and

WHEREAS, Council anticipated that authority would not be granted until the Libraries, Utilities, and Center Committee had reviewed and approved the proposed consultant scope of work for the development of a Memorial Stadium Action Plan; and

WHEREAS, Seattle Center has determined that this funding would more appropriately be used for a Strategic Parking Study and Real Estate consultant to continue discussions around the future use of Memorial Stadium and other Seattle Center spaces; and

WHEREAS, REET I is not an eligible funding source for this type of work but can be swapped for funding with other Capital Projects within Seattle Center to accomplish this objective without changing the overall funding authority within Seattle Center; NOW, THEREFORE,
