PA mulls private sponsorship of events, venues

PORT ANGELES — The city’s parks and recreation department is considering allowing sponsorship of city recreation events and facilities.

“We could start small and see where it goes,” Port Angeles Public Works Director Glenn Cutler told the Parks and Recreation Advisory Commission last week.

“If it doesn’t work, we move on to something else.

“What do you think of the concept?” he asked.

“This group needs to kick it around.”

Nine years ago when he arrived, then-parks and recreation director Scott Broden opposed the idea of corporate sponsorship, but times have changed and the city must be creative, Cutler said.

Maybe Civic Field wouldn’t have it’s name changed, but it could have a “sponsored by” attached to it, he said.

He also expected Erickson Playfield’s name to remain the same, but suggested signs for individual areas of the park, such as the skate park, Cutler said.
