Subject: [CPEO-MEF] Seattle land transfer
Discovery Park to add 23 acres

In a land deal billed as a holiday gift to the public, the city of
Seattle announced yesterday it will expand Discovery Park by 23 acres
with the purchase of property used for Navy housing. 

Once completed, the land deal will end all military presence on property
that began as an Army fort at the turn of the 20th century. In return,
for the first time since Discovery Park was created 30 years ago, it
will be home to private residences. 

Seattle Mayor Greg Nickels said the city will pay $9 million and give
other city-owned property to private developer American Eagle
Communities in exchange for the 23-acre parcel. 

Under the agreement, American Eagle will be allowed to sell 26 historic
houses elsewhere in the park to private owners. The homes are currently
being used as Navy officer housing.
