Ask for Support for Grant Application for Harrison Street Park

Please take a moment and send an email letter to our state representatives to encourage them to put in a good word with State Parks regarding our Proposition 84 grant application for funding to build the Harrison Street Park (Harrison and Fremont Streets). You can point out how deficient in Public Open Space the Rincon Hill neighborhood is even as it becomes increasingly dense and there still is no park! You can indicate why a park is important to YOU. And you can tell them that the competition is tough (over 450 applications from around the State) and that we really need their help to win the grant.

A sample letter is provided below that can be edited to your liking OR you can send your own email message without using the form to the following recipients:

Senator Mark Leno:

Assemblyman Tom Ammiano:

Please carbon copy Isabel so she has a record for her files:

Please spread the word with neighbors. It would be great to get 300 letters to Senator Leno and to Assemblyman Ammiano to back up our request (no letters directly to State Parks are allowed with the application). Thanks for all your help.

We anticipate that we will not hear anything official regarding the Proposition 84 grant decisions until October 2010.
