How many of you remember the public outcry when the new city of Federal Way decided to purchase the old Evergreen airstrip in 1990 that is the current site of Celebration Park? I thought about that controversy a couple of weeks ago when visiting the park to watch the inspiring performance of the softball teams attending the Special Olympics here in our city. What a great venue that we were able to share with teams from across the U.S.A. We could share it because of the forward-looking vision of our city leaders in the late 1980s! Some of these projects are not simply expenses – they are investments in the future livability of our city!
