Sunday Funny: Fake "Proposed Land Use Action" in Seattle

In Seattle's Green Lake neighborhood, a local with a wicked sense of humor has taken planning into his/her own hands, posting a plan to turn an empty eyesore of a lot into a public park.

Not just any public park: this plan imagines a pit full of brightly-colored plastic balls for kids of all ages to play around in. From the sign, posted on the chain link fence surrounding the empty lot:

"DPD is conducting an environmental review of the following project:

To construct one ground-level ball pit pond containing 1,200,00 cu. ft. of rainbow plastic balls."

"Existing ramp to be converted into 40 ft. slide. Addendum to the downtown height & density laws has been submitted."
