Mercer Island Parks Department to host public meeting on playground replacement

The Mercer Island Parks and Recreation Department will be holding two public meetings to discuss opportunities and receive design input on the upcoming Luther Burbank Playground replacement, scheduled for construction in the summer of 2013.

Meetings will be held on Tuesday, Feb. 5, and Tuesday, Feb. 19, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. in the Mercer Room at the Mercer Island Community and Event Center, 8236 S.E. 24th Street. Community participation and cooperation is encouraged to help design your new playground.

The purpose of these meetings is to work with the community to discuss the design of the new playground features and provide prospective design firms an opportunity to incorporate community ideas in their conceptual designs of the new Luther Burbank playground. At the Feb. 19 meeting, prospective design firms will be given the opportunity to present their conceptual designs and answer questions from the community regarding their conceptual designs.

Throughout the entire planning process, written and electronic mail comments are welcomed and accepted.
