MLK Jr. Park pool meeting rescheduled

The City of Yakima Parks and Recreation Commission meeting scheduled for Wednesday, February 13th, has been canceled due to severe winter weather. The meeting is rescheduled for 5:30 pm on Wednesday, March 13th.

The focus of this Wednesday’s meeting was to be a presentation and seeking public input for the Martin Luther King Jr. Park pool feasibility study. The pool study will now be the focus of the Parks and Recreation Commission meeting scheduled for March 13th.

The City of Yakima has hired the consulting firm Counsilman-Hunsaker to conduct the feasibility study. Miklos Valdez from that firm was originally scheduled to make a presentation during the February 13th meeting and be in Yakima all day on Thursday, February 14th, to gather information and receive input from various groups for the feasibility study.

In addition to rescheduling his Parks and Recreation Commission appearance to March 13th, Valdez will also be in Yakima on March 14th to meet with various groups about the feasibility study.

The Parks and Recreation Commission meets in Council Chambers at Yakima City Hall, 129 North 2nd Street. The March 13th meeting will be televised live on Y-PAC, Charter Cable Channel 194, and streamed live on the City’s website at
