Our editorial today concerned the pools and Albi park bond that was passed overwhelmingly by voters last month.
It urged the city to do implement the bond rapidly and with much transparency. Looks like they have that in mind.
The parks department issued this press release today:
The Spokane Parks and Recreation Department has scheduled a citizens’ informational meeting to discuss the 10 new splash pads that will be constructed in City parks, and funded by the recently approved $42.9 million Parks Improvement bond..
Are you wondering what exactly a spray pad is? Need more information on which parks are involved? Come to the meeting and find out!
When: Tuesday, December 11, 2007, 6:30-7:30 p.m.
Where: Northeast Community Center, 4001 North Cook Street.
We got a stack of letters from Debi Maher's Roosevelt Elementary third-graders, thanking voters for passing the pools and Albi bond. They put a lot of thought and work into these letters, and it's a reminder that kids will benefit most from these civic recreation amenities. Treat yourself and read a few in our extended entry below.
