"Save Cedarbrook" group aims to preserve Cedarbrook Elementary School site for public use

From the Save Cedarbrook as a Park website:

  • Just what is the "Coalition for the Preservation of Cedarbrook" and what are you trying to accomplish?

  • We are a group of neighbors, parents, dog walkers, soccer players and concerned citizens living in the vicinity of Cedarbrook Elementary School. We have joined together to work with the Shoreline School District to find an alternative to the proposed sale of the Cedarbrook property to a developer. Instead, we seek to develop this property as a Community Park.

  • What is the School Board planning to do?

  • Currently, the Shoreline School Board has declared the Cedarbrook property "surplus" and is proposing to sell the land to the highest bidder.

  • Why is this a problem?

  • The Cedarbrook property is the only open green space within walking distance of our entire area. It is heavily used by local families as a play area for young children, sports fields for local soccer teams, space to walk dogs, and just as a place to get away from it all. This needs to be preserved as park space for our community, not more housing.
