Woodland Park Zoo parking-lot funding OK’d by Seattle council

The Seattle City Council Monday unanimously approved $2 million to fund an expanded surface parking lot at the Woodland Park Zoo.

The 165-stall parking lot will be built in 2014 and will expand the inner north parking lot where portable trailers housing administrative offices are now located. Those offices will be moved to near the zoo’s west entrance. The zoo will contribute $570,000 to the construction.

The surface lot represents a compromise with neighbors who had objected to a four-story, $28 million parking garage originally approved by the council in 2004. A city hearing examiner subsequently ruled that a parking garage wasn’t a use consistent with a city park.

The city owns the zoo and the non-profit Woodland Park Zoo Society operates it under a 20-year agreement.
