Federation Meets Thursday, August 25, 2011, 7 p.m. - At the Central Seattle Senior Center
Central Area Senior Center, 500 30th Avenue South 98144
There are a host of issues confronting Seattle’s Parks and Recreation Department. How these issues are resolved, coupled with continuing budget shortfalls, will affect how our park facilities are operated and maintained. What should be the criteria and structure of public private partnerships? What went wrong and what went right with the Building 11 lease process at Magnuson Park? Is it possible to restore hours to the limited use community centers? How will the City deal with the $200 million backlog of major maintenance projects? What should be the priorities of the Parks and Recreation Department? These are just a few of the issues that Acting Superintendent Christopher Williams will address at the August Federation meeting. Bring your questions and issues.
The August meeting will also include our monthly Round Robin of issues and projects in your neighborhood. 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.
