Let the folks who play golf pay for golf course upgrades!

Don't spend $3.4 million on a new driving range for the West Seattle Golf course!

Sustainable Parks and More Trees

Lets make our parks lower maintenance and more sustainable. Tons of grass that always needs to be mowed is expensive to maintain and is not needed. We need more natural areas with trees and ferns that require less maintenance.

Putt the driving range off the table

I suggest you...focus on keeping our existing pools and parks programs healthy. Our limited financial resources should NOT be spent on a new driving range that might create an extremely limited revenue stream in the future.

Top Heavy with Upper and Middle Management

The Mayor had a chance to correct some of this when he was going to look at the enormous amount of Strategic Advisors and all of these special made positions. It is the so called little people that get the work done ( maintenance laborer, gardeners, front desk, administrative assistants, and coordinators). How many Managers, Strategic Advisors and Supervisors will be left when the shoe falls? These are the people in charge ...more »

Fair pricing for for-profit use of public spaces

Charge for-profit elite youth soccer teams a fair price for using public spaces. Currently the price is artificially low - use the money to fund field maintenance.

Do not cut Parks & Natural Area funding!

Please do NOT cut any money for Parks & Natural Areas. I work in restoration and the Parks department is *essential* for what we do. Much of the work is done by volunteers, but in order to recruit them, we NEED support from Parks!

Open some Beer Gardens

Open a few beer gardens (REAL beer gardens) in some of the larger parks. Change some of the puritanical laws this city has if you must. I'd pay a tidy sum to have a good beer on a summer day in a park beer garden.

Play Field Lights

Shut off play field lights! Should they be in use on some rainy Tues night in March or 6pm in the summer? They are expensive and inefficient-or at least invest in some kind of user control

Annual swim memberships

Offer annual memberships (perhaps in the range of $240 to $350 a year) to public swimming pools (in addition to a per-use option). People who lap swim regularly would still consider this a good deal (over paying per-use) and you could even have an "elite tier" for frequent swimmers (for an increased annual fee) who have special lap-swim hours not available to the general public.
