Parks & Rec to hold meetings about outdoor facilities

Seattle Parks and Recreation is holding two public meetings in coming weeks to gather input on the future of its outdoor facilities.

The first meeting is from 7 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, March 16 at the Jefferson Community Center, located at 3801 Beacon Ave. S. The next meeting is from 7 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, March 23 at Bitter Lake Community Center, located at 13035 Linden Ave. N. From Seattle Parks & Rec:

These meetings are an opportunity for the community to provide Seattle Parks and Recreation input on preserving and developing public outdoor recreation facilities, including parks, trails, and boating facilities. Parks encourages the public to attend and also to answer a quick nine question survey located at the plan update site:

With community input, Parks will update the 2006 Development Plan by the end of the year; it establishes eligibility for State grants through the Washington State Recreation and Conservation Office.

Parks staff will brief the Board of Park Commissioners on the draft 2011 Development Plan on May 26, 2011, and the Board will hold a public hearing on June 9, 2011.
