Speak Up for Open Space on July 15

SPEAK UP for OPEN SPACE... Who's Watching our Parks?

Join Friends of the Parks on Tuesday, July 15 for a public forum on Chicago's parks and public open spaces. Over the past few months, there have been numerous proposals for buildings to be constructed in our parks, which threaten our public open spaces.
While we support the building and expansion of museums, schools and other institutions in the City of Chicago, this is a troubling trend and slippery slope given the potential loss of the health, recreation and quality of life benefits associated with parks and public open spaces.
We need to work together to protect our parks and public open spaces from the pressures of development. Chicago lacks sufficient park space and there are many alternative development sites which would catalyze broader economic impact.
SPEAK UP to protect our parks and public open spaces. Join us in proclaiming public open space is a non-renewable resource and public input is not optional!
