South Park Community Center was identified in the 2016 Community Center Strategic plan for a major maintenance project focused on extending the life of the facility and increasing programming potential. A preliminary scope of the project is outlined below. The final scope is expected to be refined throughout the design process based on more information about cost and needs. Seattle Parks and Recreation planning staff are meeting with the community center staff to review the scope and schedule.
