Community

Recently I discovered that our local community center (1 min from our house) is closing its doors to the people and open Parks and Recreation offices instead. According to the sources - it was still in discussion and we did have an opportunity to voice our opinions and hopefully change the city council's decision.

So, I wrote letters and attended this past Saturday's meeting with a city council representative.

Today, Monday-I noticed while @ the community center-there were signs about closure for the offices as of Nov 4th!

What!?

What about this speaks "community" to you? How does opening business offices in our parks community center help us local citizens AND folks who visit?

Where we live is a beautiful park, lake, wading pool, and more for Seattle-ites - and now other elements like yoga, music, daycare, etc will be gone.

We can *drive* to another community center, but that's NOT why we moved to this part of town. We chose this community to purchase our 1st home for *all* that it has to offer.

I'm disappointed in this decision-and the lack of community involvement it included.

And yes, this will be sent to my City Council reps.
