The time is now to allow citizens who have volunteered many hours of their time to sustaining the Tukwila Pool, marketing the Tukwila Pool, volunteering at monthly Tukwila Pool events and to help put Tukwila on the map in a good light by getting involved.
I would like to start a community conversation regarding electing our Tukwila Pool Metropolitan Park District commissioners. Because the MPD is its own separate taxing district, I believe Tukwila residents should be given the opportunity to elect their board of commissioners. That is not the case currently with the City Council acting in ex-offico capacity as the MPD board.
The City of Tukwila crossed over a line it should not have when it converted a program for a group that was renting the pool, excluding men due to a combination of cultural and religious restrictions, from a private program to a public one.
People of all ages gathered Thursday, July 4, at Fort Dent for Tukwila’s annual Independence Day fireworks show. Our family arrived at 8 p.m. and found the park filled with families having a wonderful time.
