Fair Haven is a Diverse Community with a Rich History and a Beautiful Waterfront
Dear neighbors & Friends:
This morning David Z. brought to my attention that graffiti damage has been done to Lewis St. Park. Many of you know that through the efforts of many people from the Quinnipiac River Community Group, the City and our Association this park was brought back from being a very unattractive and unsafe place. I am sure that many people will ask who did this? Please note that a police report has been filed. Others will ask why this happen? The truth is we may never know. I urge you to focus on the most important question of all: What am I going to do about this?
This is what I am going to do, I hope you will join me in one or more of these activities or suggest that neighbors join you in some other response that shows the power of the community that we have built:
1. Today I will email Chrissy Hass of the Parks Department to thank her as I understand that the Parks Department has put the park on their list of places to clean up the graffiti for tomorrow Wed. 7/7. Her email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
2. Tonight I will be at the Park at 7pm today to view the damage and to see if there is anything I can do to make a positive difference in the appearance of the park.
3. Tomorrow I will be back at the park at 7pm to see if the graffiti was removed. If it was removed great, if not, working with whomever shows up I would like to develop a community strategy for getting this nuisance resolved as soon as possible.
I will ask Alder Stephanie Bauer to join us at both of these gatherings. I hope you can join in too.
Any other suggestions? Please write to me at email@example.com
