We are asking you to sign a petition to the mayor and the director of Parks & Recreation to allow the project to go forward regardless of whether or not the budgeted funds can be released.
The project would have several key benefits:
- Revitalizing an underused park at the gateway to downtown (Pali Highway & Beretania Street), displacing undesirable activity with constructive activity.
- Making a symbolic step toward food security by planting carefully selected, food-bearing trees and perennials based on permaculture concepts and providing educational signage.
- Augmenting nonprofit programs addressing mental health and homelessness issues through partnerships for park maintenance and harvest days.
- Advancing the mayor's priority to "re-establish pride in our city parks."
The petition will be up only for a few days -- please sign the petition now. Thank you!
