Fairmount Park / Ward 4-1

Had a very informative meeting early this morning with delegates from PA House of Representatives, District 172 and also representatives from the Philadelphia Parks and Recreation Administration.
We discussed the issues surrounding the portion of Fairmount Park situated in the area of Ward 4-1.
Several conclusions were agreed upon in that there is a definite need to remove several dying or dead trees, fallen limbs and an overall clean-up of the area.
It’s clear that this process will take some time and that our patience will be required until the proper equipment and staff are allocated and ready to do the job.
In the mean time, I ask that we as residents begin a dialogue and discuss what we can do to develop our own plan of attack in order to maintain and keep our portion of the park safe and clean…a “taking back” of the park, if you would.
I look forward to your comments and suggestions.
