West Linn could really use a family recreation center! Would be nice if it had an indoor pool, basketball court and racquetball court.
Complete with Ferris wheels, arcade, and food carts!
I wonder if it is possible to build on the steep basalt ridge between Willamette Drive and the 205 freeway and between the Sunset and West A bridges. If it was possible, there would be dramatic views of the river and falls and the redeveloped Blue Heron site.
West Linn has many parks from big to small, out on main streets and tucked away in neighborhoods. I think it would be fun to have the Parks & Rec Dept put out a Parks Passport that is similar to a scavenger hunt for parks. Each park would be listed on paper and also a set of clues. The goal would be to decode the clue to find the park and then visit it. Clues could be like: where the dinosaur lives or the tallest slide in town. If a child or family visits all of the parks in town they can win something or have their name listed on the town website or ???
I think you should reuse the old police station as a community arts center, like what Bozeman, MT has in an old school there. It would be a good area to put a YMCA with pools in and affordable senior apartments, too.
We need a sidewalk that extends from the high school up Skyline to the neighborhoods up top. It is dangerous for the kids as well as it limits the top neighborhoods from frequenting the shops and restaurants down there. Every person we have spoken with considers the sidewalk to he of most importance. People are afraid to walk it, let their children walk to school or that they may hit someone. Thank you for considering the sidewalk.
