Constantine proposes $360 million levy for King County parks

King County Executive Dow Constantine wants voters in August to approve a six-year, $360 million levy for park and trail maintenance, and expansion. The levy would replace two others that expire at the end of the year.

If approved, the measure would fund maintenance and operation of the county’s 200 parks, 175 miles of trails and 26,000 acres of open space, according to a news release issued today. It also would help buy or protect another 2,700 acres of open space, fund planning and design work for new trails and repair 14 trail bridges and trestles.

It would cost the owner of a $340,000 home about $64 a year.

The Metropolitan King County Council will decide whether and when to place the measure on the ballot.
