"I watch RCTV all the time. Months ago Council had frustrating study sessions to evaluate (vet) possible locations for "the Community Center." If I remember correctly, at the time they envisioned the Community Center "as a whole" -- aquatics, meeting and event spaces,visual and digital arts space, etc. I think they firmed up the location somewhere just west of City Hall near light rail, but am not sure. If by miracle an aquatics/recreation center is sited in Marymoor, the re-defined "downtown community center" footprint might be smaller and less expensive. I'm a senior and definitely hope so. The buzz I've heard discussed lately is a downtown community center is top priority."
