Weigh in on the Future of the Green Lake Community Center

October 4, 2016 6:18am


This just in on the Green Lake Community Center: a public hearing has been scheduled to discuss the Community Center Strategic Plan.

And a quick background in case you missed it… we recently discovered that the the Seattle Parks Department is seeking input on a potential operating partnership for a new Green Lake Community Center because of a capital shortfall.


The meeting will take place at Van Asselt Community Center (2820 S Myrtle St.), on October 13, 2016 at 6:30pm.

The Community Center Strategic Plan is available here. While the future of the Green Lake Community Center is only a small part of the full plan, it is obviously an important one.

The Board of Park Commissioners will receive oral and written testimony, and will make a recommendation to the Parks and Recreation Superintendent based on the feedback they receive from the public. Those who want to give input on the plan but are not able to come to the public hearing can send written comments, which bear equal weight to oral testimony. Please email comments to
