The following is a letter I received from the project manager for the park restoration.....one more meeting and we are there! I am so proud of our neighborhood for fighting for what is best for US! Please, Please if you can attend this meeting with me I would love it(even if it is just to celebrate our victory) It will be held at 451 S State(City and County Building near the library) room 126 Sept 5th at 4 pm
I think this is a great victory for us, and also a lesson- If we open our mouths we will be heard....if we sit back and simply trust our elected officials to do what's best for us we will lose every time! It is time that we not back down! This is, afterall, the best place in the city to live, work and play.
Kudos to Dell Cook and Gwen Springmeyer for all of their hard work in this for us!
The meeting went well last night and the recommendation for funding the Dog Park and the other 4Corners (so all for corners will receive the designed improvements) was approved or agreed to by the council. The new lighting for around the park was not funded.
I think that the funding can be added to the project as it is awarded after the next Landmark meeting on Sept. 5th. I think that it would be a good idea if you come in force to the Landmarks Meeting at 4:00 pm on Sept. 5th.
I think that this will be the only hold up to moving forward with the project.
Thank you for your interest in this project – Dell Cook
