Empty lots for sale in Edmonds quickly fall to hungry developers, but there's one on Bowdoin Way that's off-limits, thanks to a generous gift from a longtime resident.
Before she died in January, Shirley A. Johnson (nee Spicer) worked to donate her 1.14-acre property at 9309 Bowdoin Way to the City of Edmonds to be used as a park or community garden to cultivate and grow plants, fruits, vegetables for the citizens of Edmonds and the local community as the City deemed best.
"It's a fantastic parcel," said Parks Director Angie Feser. "It's an incredibly generous donation."
That it is.
