Save Our Parks and Open Space — Rally and Petition
Thank you to everyone who joined GVSHP and our allies this Saturday for our Parks Victory Party and kick off to Save our Parks Week! We had great support from elected officials and were honored to be joined by actress and activist Cynthia Nixon. The event had strong support from open space and community groups from across the City, and sent a strong message about the importance of the recent court ruling in favor in our lawsuit against the NYU expansion plan, the protection it gave to our public open green space. The event also received favorable coverage in the Daily News, Fox News, and even the U.K.'s Daily Mail, among other places.
But now we have to keep the momentum going. GVSHP and allied community groups have placed an on-line petition which will be sent to City officials urging them to support and uphold Judge Mills' decision, which not only protects these parks in the Village from encroachment by NYU, but helps protect public green space citywide.
