Parks department community centers are the glue that hold the communities together especially in a time of economic distress when more people of all ages turn to them. I think it is unfair to target some centers for wholly other than program use for their communities such as is being done with the Laurelhurst Community Center, whose property and first building was initially purchased by the community and given to the park department in good faith. I think a much fairer approach would be to cut programming for all centers equally and share personnel where applicable so the burden at a time like this would be equally shared.
