Public Hearing About Restoring Access to Seattle’s Recreation Opportunities

Please help support Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) by attending the upcoming public hearing regarding the creation of a Parks District to provide stable, predictable funding for SPR. City Council is considering joining 17 other Washington cities in creating Seattle’s own Parks District and have provided an opportunity to hear from the community.

Here are the meeting details:

Monday, April 7, 2014

Council Chambers, City Hall

6:00 PM Public Hearing

600 Fourth Ave, 2nd Floor

Seattle, 98104

Our parks contribute so much to the city’s quality of life, and provide so many important programs and services for people across our city and at all age and income levels.  Parks took huge budget cuts during the recent years.  Community centers are currently open at 50% of their capacity and Parks faces a $270 million parks maintenance backlog. City Council needs to hear that the community wants to restore equal access to recreation opportunities.  For more details about the recommendations, go to http://www.seattle.gov/parks/legacy/committee.htm.
