Park bond committees seeks new community members
July 23, 2013
City officials are seeking community members to serve on pro and con committees to address the park bond measure, which will go to vote in November.
Members of the committees will help educate voters by writing 200-word statements in favor of or in opposition to the measure. The statements will appear in the King County Local Voters’ Pamphlet that voters receive before the election. There is a limit of three members per committee.
If approved, the $10 million park bond measure would fund acquisition for the city’s developing “green necklace” of parks and open space connected throughout central Issaquah. In addition, existing facilities and parks will be updated, and improvements will be made to the Julius Boehm Pool.
If you are interested in being a committee member, submit your name and other information at http://bit.ly/parkbondcommittee by 4 p.m. July 26. Mayor Ava Frisinger will then appoint the members.
