Seattle Parks Exploring New Directions for Community Centers
Community invited to weigh in on options

In response to challenging budgets, Seattle Parks and Recreation has been asked by City Council to re-think how community centers are operated. Over the past five months, ideas for changing how community centers are run have been developed with the help of a citizen advisory team. Now it is time for the broader community to weigh in on several options that have been suggested.

Seattle Parks will hold two community meetings. The public is invited to attend and hear about the latest options for re-thinking our community centers.

  • Wednesday, June 15
    Bitter Lake Community Center
    13035 Linden Ave N
    7 - 8:30 p.m.
  • Thursday, June 16
    Jefferson Community Center
    3801 Beacon Ave S
    7 - 8:30 p.m.

The draft options for changing community center operations will be available June 8 at all community centers and on the Seattle Parks and Recreation web page: http://seattle.gov/parks/centers/operations.htm

Those who are unable to attend the meeting are invited to complete an online survey that will be posted on the web (same site as above) beginning June 8.
