On Thursday, Aug. 5, Malibu residents have a unique opportunity to have their voices heard about ways to enhance our city’s recreational resources. At 7:30 p.m., Takata Associates, the firm contracted by the city to develop its Master Plan, will hold a workshop at the Michael Landon Center at Bluffs Park.
On behalf of PARCS, People Achieving Recreation and Community Services, I strongly urge you to attend. The workshop focuses on programs and facilities improvements.
PARCS conducted its own Needs Assessment Survey among hundreds of user-groups to collect the current thoughts of the leadership of Malibu-based organizations who provide programs to residents of all ages. The study was unanimously endorsed by the Recreation and Parks Commission, and commended to the City Council. While we are hopeful that the results of our study are helpful to Takata in its efforts, we are equally hopeful that individual residents will attend Thursday’s meeting to speak directly to the city and to representatives of Takata Associates.
With the fate of our use of the Bluffs Park ballfields in serious peril, city of Malibu decision makers must hear what we have to say. Malibu’s needs for recreation are growing just as its school-age population grows by leaps and bounds. Please make time in your schedule to attend this important meeting.
