The future of summer concerts in downtown Woodinville is up for discussion at Tuesday’s city council meeting.
In 2011, the city contracted with a private vendor to produce and manage its summer concert series, costing $13,675, plus $6,325 in corporate sponsorships. The series included a concert at Wilmot Gateway Park on the Fourth of July, and four summer noontime concerts at DeYoung Park.
The city’s Parks and Recreation Commission reviewed possible improvements to the program in October and suggest changes be made to the 2012 series. The noontime concerts at DeYoung Park are poorly attended while the Fourth of July concerts is popular. The commission suggested the council consider evening concerts at Wilmot Park or other location and that the downtown business community should take a greater role in supporting the concerts.
The Woodinville City Council meets on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Tuesday of each month in City Hall, Council Chambers at 7 p.m. Council Meetings that fall on holidays are rescheduled to the next working day.
