A town hall meeting will be held by Wildomar City Council today in an effort to seek community feedback on ways to help fund and save the city’s parks.
The meeting comes after the California Supreme Court’s recent decision to decline review of an appeal ruling to strike down a $28 yearly assessment fee on residents. The fee helps maintains Wildomar’s parks. The court’s decision could ultimately lead to the city having to close down its three public parks.
“Not having the funding for our parks in our community hurts everyone. The consequences are devastating for the quality of life many of us have come to enjoy. This hurts the city’s efforts in everything from economic development to developing parks programming for all age groups in the city. We want our residents to show up and voice their opinions. Imagine children growing up in a community without parks it’s simply unacceptable”, Mayor Bridgette Moore said in a news release.
The town meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. at Marna O’Brien Park, 20505 Palomar Street, Wildomar.
