City leaders are considering a park bond measure to protect open space and wildlife habitat, improve neighborhood parks and make much-needed repairs to Julius Boehm Pool, one of the last publicly operated pools in our area.

The Park Bond Citizen Advisory Committee wants to hear from the public in a variety of ways, according to a news release from the city.

community open house is scheduled from 6:30-9 p.m. June 17 at Pickering Barn, 1730 10th Ave. N.W.

“All of us look forward to listening and learning more about our community’s parks and recreation priorities,” Mayor Ava Frisinger said in the release. “Your input will guide us as we plan for the future of the parks, recreation, open space and trails that we all value so greatly.”

A recommendation is expected to be made to the Park Board by June 24. The decision about whether to place a park bond measure on the November 2013 general election ballot is up to the City Council.
