Update on fate of community center & pool

Posted on May 17th, 2010 by Sara Willy

Concern continues to grow about the future of the Queen Anne Community Center and Pool.  Today, Queen Anne View learned the city’s Parks Department submitted its “budget papers” for 2011, which identify issues and potential service cuts. We’re told some facilities are on that list, but a spokesperson for the Parks Department could not provide any specifics until the mayor’s office makes its recommendations.

As for the rest of 2010, the mayor is set to announce mid-year budget cuts around June 1. Community centers, pools, and wading pools across the city are facing closure as the Parks Department tries to trim its budget.
