I believe that Parks, Arts and Recreation Department can be one place where the rubber meets the road in terms of sustainability.
So, I am glad that I hauled myself down to yesterday's public input workshop on the City (of Olympia) Parks Plan. It was a great turn-out. There were somewhere between 150 and 200 people there.
