Seattle Parks and Recreation will host three community meetings in January to get feedback on the work done by the Parks Legacy Citizens’ Advisory Committee in preparation for a potential 2014 park and recreation funding ballot measure.
The meetings will feature a brief presentation that describes how the committee has prioritized a list of potential investment initiatives. That will be followed by professionally facilitated workshops that seek community input.
The meetings will be held:
• Thursday, January 23, International District/Chinatown Community Center, 719 8th Ave. S, at 6 p.m.
• Saturday, January 25, High Point Community Center, 6920 34th Ave. SW, 1 p.m. (free childcare will be provided)
• Thursday, January 30, Bitter Lake Community Center, 13035 Linden Ave. N, at 7 p.m.
Seattle Parks and Recreation began working on the Park Legacy Plan, which forms the basis of a ballot funding measure, more than a year ago. Read the press release for full details.
To learn more, read the Legacy Committee’s Interim Report. It’s available at www.seattle.gov/parks/legacy/committee.htm, or in hard copy at community centers and pools. Those who want to give input, but are not able to come to the meetings can give written comments, which bear equal weight to verbal comments. Please email comments to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Anyone attending a meeting is encouraged to send a report to this site!
