Public meeting on future of city’s community centers

Seattle Parks & Recreation is presenting possible models of operation for Seattle’s community centers, in the wake of budget cuts. The first public meeting is from 7-8:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Bitter Lake Community Center, 13035 Linden Ave. N., north of Greenwood.

A second public meeting is from 7-8:30 p.m. Thursday at the Jefferson Community Center, 3801 Beacon Ave. S.

Ballard has two community centers that could be affected: Ballard Community Center at 6020 28th Ave. NW, and Loyal Heights Community Center at 2101 NW 77th St.

Seattle Parks and a Community Center Advisory Team spent six months examining current uses at community centers and came up with nine options, including raising fees, reducing staff and hours at some community centers, and even closing some centers.
