West Central Weekly News-March 18th Gala and More!

Hello Park Folk-

Yes we will be hosting another sweet little work session at West Central Park tomorrow from 11-1. It will likely be raining and we have indoor as well as outdoor chores to do for the Park maintenance. Come spend a couple of hours in community on a Sunday morn.

But foremost for the Park this week, there is a special fundraiser set for next Saturday evening, at 5:30pm at the Hotel RL. This gala event features the Gloria Dei Lutheran Church’s Partners in Ministry program honoring the West Central Park! What could be better for the health and beauty of your neighborhood? Two very local non profits that care about the quality of your life in community, getting together and saying thank you to each other, and inviting the whole neighborhood to come and say thank you too! Get your invite here to apply a sliding scale from $25 to $75 or get a $75 ticket directly online at the Gloria Dei square store
Get your charitable giving done at one event that benefits two awesome local organizations, March 18th, 5:30 pm, Hotel RL!
See you at the Gala!

The Alley Vacation Petition decision has been deferred until March 21st when the City Council must make their decision based on a staff recommendation (currently being worked out), and all the public commentary that has been received regarding the petition. The staff will bring in the petitioners to have all concerned be able to come to a mutually agreeable recommendation. The Park’s stance now is that given the support of the community, and the council’s support, and the fact that 100% of petitioners will grant easements in perpetuity to bike, pedestrian, emergency, city, utility and Park, that nothing less than a recommendation of support for the vacation and the compensation waiver will be deemed agreeable by the
petitioners. See the hearing here. Our part is around 50 minutes in.

Let us know what you think about the whole thing! wcp@aparkforus.org

Thanks West Oly!
