City may allocate $1 million for Chinese Reconciliation Park

City Council members are scheduled to hear the final reading of an ordinance Aug. 16 that would accept two state grants worth a combined $1,032,320 for the construction of Chinese Reconciliation Park on the shore of Commencement Bay. The ordinance would also allow the City to accept $20,000 in cash or in-kind equivalents from the Chinese Reconciliation Foundation and have the City match the grant funds with $1,019,679 from the Economic Development Special Revenue Fund, including $497,239 from a previous state legislative grant, for a combined total of $2,017,999 for the park project.
