01/17/2012 00 Misc Distributed at the MeetingOFFICE OF THE MAYOR 129 North Second Street City Hall, Yakima, Washington 98901 Phone (509) 575-6050 • Fax (509) 576-6335 January 13, 2012 Mr. Joe Jenkins 1825 7th Avenue, W Seattle, WA 98119 Dear Mr. Jenkins: b;skiNJ-lee) 1/7f/2_ On behalf of the City of Yakima, the Yakima Parks & Recreation Commission and the Yakima Parks and Recreation Division, I wish to thank you for the generous donation to the Parks Division. Your action and letter has touched our hearts. As you know, public financial resources have been reduced drastically over the past few years while the need for parks and recreation services has increased. Your donation of $4,000.00 will be used to offset the costs of the Thursday night `Summer Sunset Concert Series' for six weeks this summer at Franklin Park. This 'free to the public' family friendly series is enjoyed by thousands of our residents each summer. Without your donation we would have struggled to fund this community favorite in 2012. The Yakima City Council, Yakima Parks and Recreation Commission and City of Yakima staff firmly support the belief stated in your letter that parks and recreation programs contribute to the health and well being of our youth and community. Thank you again for your generosity. Sincerely, Mayor Micah Cawley Yakima Atamerkatmy 1111! 1994 JENKINS : 1825 7th Ave., W.

The recent survey for the Parks and Recreation Comprehensive Master Plan asked citizens if they were supportive of us providing ad space in the Program Guide. Over 91% of the respondents stated that selling ad space was acceptable. The Program Guide is published three times per year. As of the date of this memo, only one business has expressed an interest in purchasing ad space, however; we believe that as we begin to sell advertising space other businesses will also participate. Currently, the Harman Center quarterly news letter sells advertising space to assist with covering the publication costs and direct mailing costs. The Parks and Recreation Commission has supported the selling of ad space in the Program Guide based on the positive response to the survey question. The proposed cost for the ad space has been provided on the following page and is comparable to fees charge in similar publications. As we move forward with this new endeavor, it is our hope that this will become a steady new revenue source for the Parks and Recreation Division. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact Ken Wilkinson at 576-6416 or at kwilkins@ci.yakima.wa.us.

These guides include the goings-on of all things Parks and Recreation including Aquatics, Youth Recreation, Adult Sports and Fitness, Harman Center, Fisher Golf, Special Events and City Park information. We asked the question in our 2011 City-wide random survey if citizens would support advertising space being sold in the program guides to help printing costs and we saw a resounding vote of support to do so (91% yes). There are 22,500 program guides printed for each issue. Of that number, approximately 12,000 are distributed as an insert in the Yakima Herald. The remainders are distributed as various locations throughout the City including City facilities, Schools, and businesses. The guide is also available for digital download on the City's Parks and Recreation website and Facebook Page. 101 North 65th Avenue Yakima, WA 98908 \)\7elconl City of Yakima welcomes all persons 55 years of age and older to participate in a wealth of recreational and social activities at the Harman Center, a unit of the Parks and Recreation Division, Department of Public Works.
