Sorry for the late notice — we’ve been dealing with some technical issues earlier today, and after receiving this announcement this afternoon, weren’t able to post this until now. There is a meeting tonight at 7 p.m. at Jefferson Community Center (3801 Beacon Ave. S.) on Environmental Programs, Open Space and Maintenance in Seattle Parks.
Here’s the announcement:
Dear Jefferson Park neighbor,
Seattle Parks and Recreation is hosting their fourth Parks Legacy Plan meeting tonight at Jefferson Community Center. Attached is a brochure that explains importance of the plan and tees up some questions that will help direct future funding.
At Parks we’re nearing the end of two consecutive levies, primarily for capital projects, that have expanded our park system. We’re at a crossroads. We’ve created the first draft of a Parks Legacy Plan that will take us into the future. This is the time when the public can have the greatest impact in shaping the future of Seattle Parks and Recreation.
The draft includes information on our city’s changing demographics, our current budget and basic services, what people think about our current parks system based on a series of recent surveys, national and regional trends in recreation, and information on costs, attendance and community benefit. It poses policy questions we’re asking the public to answer at the six meetings and/or by email.
