Parks & Recreation Advisory Board (PRAB)Eight members of TLL/SSC attended this meeting where we gave a brief history of the agreement, the recent events and the fact that City Council was going to be asked to render a decision on: "Should TLL/SSC be viewed as different than other organizations regarding Cook Park field use?" The PRAB members asked questions and agreed to make this topic an agenda item at their July meeting: Monday, July 8th, 7 p.m., Public Works Building, 8777 SW Burnham Road, Tigard.
