SEATTLE - As many as 200 people are expected to attend the first public meeting for a zip line plan at a Seattle park.
Seattle Parks is negotiating with a British company to put a zip line course at Lincoln Park.
According to Seattle Parks, the department would be paid up to $69,000 a year by the company.
Neighbors told KIRO 7 Eyewitness News the course would disrupt some of the most quiet forest areas in the park, such as areas where songbirds and forest animals gather.
“There are nesting pairs of bald eagles here,” said Brian Romas, a frequent Lincoln Park visitor.
Romas told KIRO 7 that he spends time at the park almost every day. He also said the Morgan Community Association has put the zip line plan on the agenda for its July 18 meeting.
