Strength in Numbers: We've Got a New Tool for Improving Your Park
We completed another successful round of Boro X Boro
meetings, and what we learned can strengthen your advocacy. Our Boro X Boro At-A-Glance one page report shows the key takeaways from our meetings with over 190 community
groups and individuals representing all corners of the city, and articulates a
vision of what’s important to New York park advocates.
If you see your concerns about open space reflected here, you can use this document when speaking with
your elected officials to show that yours is not just a local issue - it's affecting all parts of the city.
The next two weeks are a critical time in the city’s budget

Executive Budget, and it’s your last chance to talk to your elected officials
before the budget is finalized. We encourage everyone to reach out to their council member ASAP.
