The Activities Building at Fircrest School in Shoreline was closed by
Washington State Department of Social and Health Services in 2009
due to budget cuts
Building located at 15239 15th Ave NE, Shoreline, WA 98155
There is a full size gym, auditorium, kitchen facilities and two pools
(main pool and a therapy pool heated to 95 degrees) both of which are
accessible by stairs or lift.
The building is centrally located and accessible to all. It is an important venue for community events and activities.
Many groups have asked about this facility and the closure of the pool was detrimental to the
health of those with disabilities – ranging from arthritis, spinal cord injuries, fibromyalgia,
cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis and more.
We, the undersigned, are concerned citizens and community groups
who urge our leaders to action in reopening this facility for our
community activities and the health and recreation for our citizens. We
are interested in finding alternative funding sources to maintain the
building and also interested in pilot projects and programs with those
who work with solar or wind energy to help minimize the utility costs.
