The City of Austin Parks and Recreation Department will host an interactive town hall meeting to solicit opinions about Austin’s public pools and splash pads.

Interactive Town Hall Meeting

To maximize the amount of community input the Aquatic Assessment will receive; PARD and the Consultants will survey the community utilizing several methods.

PARD will host an Interactive Town Hall Meeting on April 29, 2014 at 7pm beginning with an open house at 6:30pm in the George Washington Carver Museum and Cultural Center Theater.  Functioning much like a radio call-in show, the Interactive Telephone Town Hall will simultaneously connect thousands of interested stakeholders with organizational leaders and Aquatics Stakeholders from the comfort of their own home.  Everyone is welcome to attend or to call into this meeting.  Methods to participate are:
