Citizens group advocates for Saybrook Park
To the Editor:
Citizens for Saybrook Park was recently formed as a grassroots movement to urge the City of University Heights to purchase the former Fuchs Mizrachi School property between Saybrook and Fenwick roads. Our group would like to see the site converted into a city park.
This is a golden opportunity to create a large open space for University Heights residents. As residents know, most of our yards are small, and we would love to have a park where we’d be able to play with our kids, throw a football around, or take a stroll away from the street noise. This is the type of asset that helps a city attract new homebuyers and improves the quality of life of its current residents.
To show our support, residents have contacted city hall to offer words of encouragement. We have also started a Facebook page (www.facebook.com/CitizensForSaybrookPark) where residents can collaborate and share their message.
On behalf of Citizens for Saybrook Park, we look forward to making history with city council and the mayor by creating this new park in University Heights.
