New website launches Rec and Park into 21st century

It shouldn’t be hard to find where to apply for an event permit or how to sign up for recreational activities on Rec and Park’s new website .

And those are two of the most important issues park staff addressed when they redesigned the page.

They’ve come a long way from their outdated, hand-written system that, last year, was the only way to access park services.

The website that exists now, however, is in adolescence, and the official redesign could launch as soon as Friday.

But if you’re really anxious, you can get a sneak peak of the site at the Recreation and Park Commission’s regular meeting Thursday.

Park General Manager Phil Ginsburg’s next step away from antiquation: Get everyone on staff an e-mail.
