Community feedback to government is always a good idea and the news that the Hermiston Parks and Recreation Department hosted an open house last week to gather input from residents regarding a new park illustrates a realization that officials want to keep voters in the loop on the project.

The meeting attracted a modest crowd and offered residents an opportunity to give their own views regarding park amenities, safety features and as well as a name for the park.
