Last Chance to Speak at Final Public Hearing Tomorrow on Proposed Closure of Community Center

The final Public Hearing to comment on the 2011 Budget and specfically the proposal to close the Laurelhurst Community Center is tomorrow at 5:30pm at Seattle City Hall Council Chambers, 2nd floor at 600 Fourth Avenue.

The Hearing starts at 5:30pm with sign-in to speak at 5 pm.

Tracy, with the Save the Laurelhurst Commmunity Center group, says about the last Public Hearing, "....the key message is for as many people to attend as possible.   I know Jeannie (Hale - LCC President) is planning to arrive early to sign in so we won't be so far down on the list this time.  

"People don't necessarily need to speak to attend - just being there makes a difference. But the more folks who are willing to speak up and tell their story the better.

"I would emphasize that this is the last opportunity to let the council know face to face that we value LCC and urge them to re-work the budget to save this important resource in our community."

If you can't go, here are ways to send in your input.
