Parks & rec meeting

We can’t promise Leslie Knope, Tom Haverford or Ron Swanson will be in attendance, but the public is encouraged to attend the Duluth Parks and Recreation Commission’s annual planning meeting Wednesday.

The names above are characters from the NBC comedy “Parks and Recreation” — of course you knew that.

The meeting will begin at 5 p.m. in the conference room at the main Duluth Police Station, 2030 Arlington Ave., and offers residents a chance to share their thoughts on what programming and services the department should provide.
