Remains disatisified

July 31, 2012 

In April, the Herald published a letter from me describing the refusal of the management of the Richland Community Center to work with facility users ("Stubborn staff," April 11).

After an initial promising response by the director of the Parks and Recreation Department, no actions were taken and more problems have arisen. Facility management is at best indifferent to users and often is hostile.

We hear "too much cards," too much "bridge," and "too many senior programs." The stated "purpose" of the center on the Richland website is: 'contains the Administrative, Park Planning and Construction Division and Recreation Division offices of the Parks and Recreation Department."

Current management practices suggest that the purpose really could be offices, rather than a thriving community center. If you share these concerns, please let the Richland City Council know. The management of this fine facility must be changed.


Tri-City Herald is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
