A Dialogue with Parks Superintendent Tim Gallagher
Seattle Parks and Recreation is committed to maintaining safe and welcoming environments and offering programming and services that are relevant neighbors. So, how is the Parks Department doing? Are the needs of your community being addressed? Is the Department responsive to your concerns regarding the many issues that arise? The Department’s Strategic Action Plan establishes a vision and guide for decision-making for a five-year period. How is it working? How are things progressing with passage of the 2008 Parks and Green Spaces Levy? Is the synthetic turf policy appropriate for our parks? These are a sampling of the issues that will be addressed with featured guest Parks Superintendent Tim Gallagher at the July Federation meeting.
The July meeting will also include our monthly Round Robin of issues and projects in your neighborhood. It is your opportunity to brief our citywide membership about what you are working on and to share perceptions on what is going right and what isn’t with our city government.
If you have informational materials you would like distributed at the meeting, please email electronic copies or links to Jeannie Hale at firstname.lastname@example.org.
