Hon. Scott Wiener,Supervisor, District 8:
In 2010 and 2011, RPD and the Trust for Public Land completed a 10-month process to reach a clear consensus on the Glen Park Recreation Center Improvement Plan, to upgrade the playground, the Recreation Center building, tennis courts andplaying fields, and provide safer and attractive access to the RecreationCenter.
About $6 million is available to begin work on the playground, tennis courts, access,and initial improvements to the Rec Center. About $16 million more ne eds to be in place so that the work underway doesn’t stall.
Glen Canyon Park and the Recreation Center serve the whole city, not just the immediate neighborhood, for team sports, family gatherings, meetings and classes in the Rec Center, and the trails in the canyon.
Please put the Glen Park Recreation Center Improvement Plan on the 2012 recreation and parks capital bond ballot.
