Saving green space -- community gathering

Dateline: Sat 27 Oct 2007

This just in from Clarke Kahlo of the Hoosier Environmental Council. This time Clarke is wearing his Canal Park Advocates hat.

The issue is (again) saving green space in park-starved Indianapolis.

"Canal Park Advocates, a grassroots citizens group, will conduct a community forum on 'Canal Park' on Tues., Nov. 13, at 6 p.m. in the Canal Room of Marriott's Residence Inn, 350 West New York St. Citizens will be given an opportunity to express their views about the ultimate use of the one acre of land on the downtown canal (just north of Ohio Street and across the canal from the Indiana History Center). The City and State have proposed commercial development on the site.

"Canal Park Advocates is seeking a commitment from the City and State to dedicate the site as a permanent public park. The purpose of the forum is to hear from people whose views are not reflected in the City and State's pro-commercial development proposal. All preservation- and civic-minded citizens are urged to attend the forum and present their views supporting protection and enhancement of this land as a civic and parkspace. For more info, call (317) 283-6283 or e-mail"
