Join the Parks for People initiative!

The Parks for People initiative was born after many of our residents reached out to our office with concerns about the state of our parks. We hope to increase short term funding for the next budget cycle and find a longer term sustainable funding source.

A petition was launched by a District 8 resident and I highly encourage you to sign and share it with your friends and family. It takes just a few seconds and will help bring our community together to urge for increased resources for our parks. The goal is to reach 1,000 signatures by July 1st, so please make sure to sign and share!

You can also follow the Parks for People initiative by liking the Facebook page. It is regularly updated with information about our public green spaces, so please like the page and send content you think should be shared!
