The General Meeting of Community Board 12: For those who were wondering--

Here's a bit of good news--we didn't lose. The vote was postponed for technical reasons. We did get to read and present our petition (1,181 signatures, with many more still to be added), and speak to the Community Board for about nine minutes, altogether. It would be fair to say we made a strong impression.

The Parks Department resolution to approve their plan, which was never voted on by a full quorum at the committee level, is going back to committee, and then back to the general meeting. Next month. So this is not over. And if you were hoping you'd still have a chance to speak up about this issue, and defend open green space in our North Manhattan riverfront parks--you do.

In the near future, there will be more detailed information posted on the newly created Friends of Fort Washington Park blog.

And in the meantime, I'll try to get some nice doggy photos up here.
