Families Invited to Weigh In On New Direction for Community Centers

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 in this endeavor. The public is invited to attend and hear about the latest options.

  • Wednesday, June 15: Bitter Lake Community Center (13035 Linden Ave. N.), 7 to 8:30 p.m.

  • Thursday, June 16: Jefferson Community Center (3801 Beacon Ave. S.), 7 to 8:30 p.m.

The draft options for changing community center operations are available at all community centers and also on the Seattle Parks and Recreation website. Those who are unable to attend the meeting are invited to complete an online survey at this same link.
