As I said a few days ago, Seattle Parks and Recreation, for some reason, sends out all their press releases in a Comic Sans-like font. I sent an e-mail to Joelle Hammerstad at SP&R asking why this was and never heard back from her.

But the title of today's press release from Seattle Parks & Recreation might explain it: When you make a typo, it looks like a hilarious, Family Circus-style mangled speech mixup!

Aww. Isn't it adorable? Just like a heartwarming Bil Keane caption! (Chuckle.) Will that Dolly ever learn how to talk right? (The full press release is after the jump.)

CAPITOL HILL PARKING LOT AT NE CORNER OF
JOHN AND SUMMIT TO CLOSE PERMENTANTLY

Seattle Parks and Recreation will permanently close the parking lot at 200 Summit Ave E. on Friday, March 26, 2010 at 3 p.m. to begin development of the new park for the west side of Capitol Hill. Construction fencing will be erected around the park on today, March 25, and will the area will be closed fully closed to vehicles on Friday at 3 p.m.

The City purchased the .21-acre property in January of 2007 with funding from the 2000 Pro Parks Levy. At the time the City purchased the property, an agreement was put in place that allowed Diamond Parking Services to continue to manage the lot until the property became developed into a park.

On March 24, Seattle Parks opened construction bids for the project, which will develop the lot into a community park with trees, plantings, a lawn, a picnic table, seating areas, terraced walkway and P-patch gardens. The low bidder will be awarded the construction bid in the coming weeks. Construction is anticipated to begin in early April, with a fall 2010 completion.
