STOP Community Center Closings

Consider how your proposed community center closings threaten your OWN stated goals of keeping Seattle livable for the workforce and the middle class. Your targets ARE community centers in middle class neighborhoods. Green Lake, Queen Anne, Laurelhurst, neighborhoods with many young families trying to remain in the city, pay taxes and derive support for their children, for their mental and physical health- these community ...more »

We should cut from Campus Grounds Budget Control Level in the Seattle Center budget, with an 11 million dollar plus budget cut all overtime and reduce some maintenance.

Keep ALL Community Centers Open

Please do not cut staff from the community centers that provide vital services to our city. What other department interfaces more with the public to connect city government to everyday citizens' voices and needs?

Keep QACC available for families

Queen Anne may be a wealthier neighborhood in Seattle, but it is also a place where lower middle-class people like me (renter) chose to raise our families.

Pilot the senior program at Magnuson vs. Laurelhurst

Greenlake Community Center

The reduction in hours for the tot playroom will have a huge impact. I went yesterday morning (the first weekday since the rainy weather began), and it was PACKED with toddlers. I suggest you add some Saturday hours as there are very few low cost options to keep active toddlers busy indoors on rainy weekends.

DO NOT CUT FUNDING TO ALKI CC

I suggest you DO NOT shut down or cut funding for Alki Community Center. It's huge support and resource in our community and would be a terrible detriment to our mixed socioeconomic neighborhood and adjacent school!
