A Triumph for Parks!
$1.1 MILLION RESTORED TO THE OFFICE OF PARKS!
Hundreds of you responded to our emails and contacted your elected officials, sending the message loud and clear that the Office of Parks’ budget should not suffer significant cuts and that Atlantans deserve a well-maintained park system. The amended FY2012 budget, approved 6/30/11, RESTORES $1.1 MILLION TO THE OFFICE OF PARKS!
We thank Park Pride’s supporters for your successful efforts to advocate for the importance of parks! Park Pride issued the call to action to Act to Save Atlanta’s Parks (ASAP!) and you responded. Without your emails, phone calls and attendance at City Council meetings, our leaders would not know the importance of parks to our communities.
Thanks to Mayor Reed and hard working City Council representatives for restoring the funds needed to keep our parks safe and well-maintained!
Please contact your City Councilperson to personally thank them for their leadership on this issue. Email addresses for the councilmembers are located in the right-hand column of this page.
This victory couldn't have happened without you!
