Rapid Response

The city Parks & Recreation Department has hosted a series of open houses and offered a Web questionnaire to gather input on a planned downtown parks complex. How would you rate the city’s public outreach effort during the planning phase?

Issaquah is unique in how involved its administration and staff is in seeking public input. I suspect Issaquah is far ahead of sister cities with regard to the number of citizens it has on its various boards and commissions.

Superb! The parks department and the city as a whole does a very good job at public outreach, not only for this park design, but for all city initiatives.

I haven’t seen any questionnaires. I live outside the city limits, but use the city infrastructure and parks. I would like to have some input.

Though I was not able to attend, I appreciated that the effort was made to get citizen input — good job parks and rec!
