Re-Open the Alvan Petrus Park

Re-open The Alvan Petrus Park.

I'm sure you have all read and heard this before: "Re-open The Alvan Petrus Park."

But the park remains closed, and the children in this Port Washignton community have lost their only close and safe place to play.

Everyone in Town of North Hempstead and Port Washignton should sign this online petition, urging TONH and the North Hempstead Housing Authority to re-open this park at once.

Please sign the online petition.

Petition, petition, petition, Strength in numbers. No elected official wants to fear his job when the majority of constituants speak out. Flood the switchboards so they legislators get the message. No re-election if you stop listening to the public!

Supporters of the Petrus Park thank everyone who came to the ToNH board meeting to add their voices for re-opening the Park. The vote last night is only one step so please continue to follow this story. Thank you to the ToNH board members, without your support and last night's vote this new step would not have happened. Supervisor Jon Kaiman Councilwoman Viviana Russell Councilman Thomas Dwyer Councilman Angelo Ferrara Councilwoman Anna Kaplan Councilwoman Lee Seeman Councilwoman Dina De Giorgio Please follow the Petrus Park Facebook page for news and information. http://www.facebook.com/alvinpetruspark

Two solid pieces in today's Port Washington News about the Petrus Park. The re-opening of the park remains a top story in the Port News where the park was front page news in the prior two issues. Again today the Port news has a half page editorial again showing this is an important story for all of North Hempstead. http://portwashington-news.com/2012/editorial-answers-to-questions-about-alvan-petrus-park/ Save the Petrus Park on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/alvinpetruspark
