South Kitsap Parks Board offers support for levy

The South Kitsap Parks and Recreation District Board of Commissioners passed a resolution on Thursday supporting the passage of the 2005 South Kitsap School District replacement levy.

The resolution, signed by all five commissioners, cemented the board’s goal to “maintain quality educational services benefiting students and residents of the South Kitsap community.”

In the resolution, the board highlighted potential partnerships that would benefit both the school district and the park itself.

“The SK Parks and Recreation District’s Master Plan promotes incorporating existing county and school district facilities into time-sharing facilities for recreational programs,” the proclamation reads.

“The South Kitsap Parks Board of Commissioners respects the contributions of quality education on behalf of the entire community,” it adds, “and invites partnerships to create outdoor recreations programs in South Kitsap Community Park...The education received by today’s youth will assist them as they begin to manage the future economic, environment, and cultural health of Kitsap County.”

According to Chair Larry Walker, the meeting included a presentation of the board’s proposed 2005 goals.

“Our primary goal this year is to look at funding,” Walker said. “Everything in the park hinges on the ability to fund it.”

Old business includes the ongoing contract re-negotiations between Annapolis Water District and the Board.

“We’re still just having conversations,” Walker said.
