Help shape the future of Seattle's Community Centers
Seattle City Councilmember Bagshaw encourages communities to contribute ideas

SEATTLE – Throughout last year’s budget process, Seattle City Council heard from hundreds of people about the value of programming at their Community Centers.  As a result of the concerns voiced, Council passed a Statement of Legislative Intent asking the Department of Parks and Recreation to examine how Community Centers are operated.

Beginning on February 2, Parks will embark on a citywide conversation to look at the future of community centers, specifically how to continue important services while reducing costs and explore long-term, sustainable programming models.

"We heard from the community about the value of their centers and we hope to see those same individuals on February 2, so we can continue this much needed conversation," said Councilmember Sally Bagshaw, chair of the Parks and Seattle City Committee.  "Now is the time to make a difference in your neighborhood."

Seattle residents are invited to share their feedback on Seattle’s Community Centers and join Councilmember Bagshaw at the kick-off event for this process: 

When:            Wednesday, February 2, 6:30 – 8:30 p.m.

Where:           Miller Community Center, 330 19th Avenue East
