HPNA Membership Meeting April 4, 2007

Jenny Meyer from the Embankment Preservation Coalition discussed the status of the Embankment project and the new "Make Our Park" sign campaign.

Recent events - particularly the Council majority's refusal to vote 'yes' to allow the city to apply for a $5 million bridge loan (at a low 1% interest rate) from the New Jersey Environmental Infrastructure Trust to help pay for the Embankment - have demonstrated that the majority our elected officials do not think that open space/park issues are a priority or even a compelling issue. It is important that the thousands of citizens who support a wide variety of open space issues city-wide let the Mayor and City Council know that this is a key voter issue that is not going away.
