Help keep island’s parks thriving

  • Oct 11, 2008 at 12:00AM

Earlier this year two surveys were conducted on Bainbridge Island to gather information about how islanders prioritize public services. Both surveys (sponsored separately by the city and the Bainbridge Island Metropolitan Park District) found that residents value open space above most other public services and would be willing to pay to continue to provide these kinds of amenities. In response to these survey findings, the Metro Park District Board, in its usual decisive fashion, voted to place a measure on the Nov. 4 ballot to support open space, trails and parks. A victory for Proposition One will support a truly comprehensive parks system for current and future islanders.
