Don't Miss the Special Community Center Meeting Thursday Night To Give Input On The Fate Of The Community Center

Seattle Parks and Recreation is holding a special outreach meeting at the Laurelhurst Community Center regarding the future of the Community Center on Thursday at 7pm. Neighbors are strongly encouraged to attend.

We recently posted about the Mayor's proposal to further drastically reduce hours at the Laurelhurst and Magnuson Community Centers as well as many other community centers starting in January.

 "The meeting this week is important because it’s an opportunity for neighbors to tell Parks what classes and activities they want most to keep," Jeannie Hale, Laurelhurst Community Club President told us.

The Seattle Parks and Recreation flier for the meeting on Thursday evening says:

Northeast Geographical Region Advisory Council Community Nights 
Everyone is invited!
Be heard. Be Seen.
We want to know how best to serve you.

In a World Café format, you will have the opportunity to:
  • Explore community priorities:What should we prioritize?What should we keep doing?What should we stop doing?What can you do?
  • Talk with Parks and Recreation staff and neighbors about your ideas to build community relationships 
  • Share your voice and personal vision/ideas with others
