The city is recruiting an interested citizen to fill a vacancy on the Neighborhood Parks Improvement Subcommittee (NPIS) for Jack Long Park located at 22106 58th Avenue West.
The park is named after Jack Long, a local citizen and one of the original leaders for park development in Mountlake Terrace. He lived in a house near the present site of St. Pius X Church. In 1967, the park was dedicated in his memory.
The Neighborhood Parks Improvement Subcommittee gives 10 citizen volunteers the responsibility for conducting an annual inventory of the neighborhood parks and recommending improvements to the Recreation and Parks Advisory Commission (RPAC). Appointed by RPAC, NPIS representatives must live within a half mile of the park they represent and serve three-year staggered terms.
Members find the experience fun and rewarding by meeting other residents with similar interests, learning about the recreation and parks in the city, and helping shape the future of their neighborhood parks in Mountlake Terrace.
For an application or more information, please contact the City Clerk/Community Relations Director Virginia Olsen at (425) 744-6206 or [email protected] or visit the city’s web site.
