This meeting is a first step, and attendance is important to show the city that this is a priority. We will struggle to get money for this expansion if there doesn't appear to be much energy for this major boon to the neighborhoods of the North End.
Here's the official release:
OPEN SPACE PROPERTIES AT 4109-4125 MOUNT VERNON AVE.
The Department of Recreation, Parks and Cultural Activities invites the public to attend an informational meeting, to discuss the upcoming park planning and design process for the open space properties at 4109-4125 Mount Vernon Ave. The informational meeting is scheduled for Thursday, August 6, at 7 pm on site at 4109 Mount Vernon Ave. The site was acquired in January of 2007 as part of the City’s Open Space Program.

It's just a short walk for many of us, so let's show up in force.
