In February of 2014, we brought you information regarding the fate of the Roosevelt Reservoir. Since that time, we have received notice that the time needed to determine if the reservoir can indeed be surplussed has been extended until early to late 2016. You can read the public notice here.
If and when the Roosevelt Reservoir needs to be surplussed, look to your community associations (www.ravennabryant.org and www.rooseveltseattle.org) to help with the public process needed to fairly determine what happens with this roughly 12-acre piece of property. The Roosevelt Neighborhood Association has written about this issue on their blog and Facebook page. Since the reservoir is technically in Roosevelt, not RBCA, RNA will take the lead on this. Check out RBCA’s boundaries here.
