Budget Cuts Impact Seattle Parks And Recreation

    Keep our pools, community centers, and parks open!

    The Mayors Office and Seattle City Council have some tough choices to make this summer in regards to which pools, community centers, and park services will no longer be offered due to a $10,000,000 budget gap for the second half of the 2010 budget.  Let your voice be heard by contacting city leaders.

    Your personal story about the pools, community centers, and park services is the most important thing for them to hear to encourage them to keep these services open especially in a down economy when we need parks and recreation services available to us more than ever!

    Following are some of the pools and community centers in our neighborhood that may be affected:

    •    Helene Madison Pool
    •    Bitter Lake Community Center
    •    Meadowbrook Pool and Community Center
    •    Loyal Heights Community Center
    •    Ballard Pool and Community Center
    •    Green Lake Community Center
    •    Evans Pool

    This is the last week before the decisions are announced on June 1st!  Send the  Mayor and City Council your personal story today!
