above: [L]. . Day 2 Collage … [R] Days 3 & 4 Collage. .
Please let the folks in Schenectady’s City Hall know if you agree with our message that there should be No New Pump Station in Riverside Park — instead, retrofit or upgrade the Old Pump Station on its own parcel, or put a new sewage pump station in the extra space on that lot, or elsewhere, outside our Park.
See, e.g., our post “strong, thoughtful opposition to pump station in the park” (May 3, 2017, with updates), for a sample of concerns and questions presented by Stockade residents and owners. See slideshows with dozens of photos of and from the West Lawn of Riverside Park, in all seasons, at both tinyurl.com/WLawn and tinyurl.com/WLawn2
Below are names and email addresses for City Council Members, and the Mayor, and two Gazette journalists who may be sympathetic to our outcry — especially due to the lack of transparency and neighborhood input.
- the first Selfie-Pumpie photo session will be Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, May 15-17, from 6 to 7 PM, on the West Lawn of Riverside Park. Look at this space to see if additional dates are added.
- RALLY – June 24. A Rally to support the Not In Our Park campaign will be held on Saturday, June 24, at 11 AM, at Arthur’s Market, 35 N. Ferry Street. Who knows, by then it might be a Victory Party.
