Meet us at the Meeting…
As we near the exciting conclusion of the first public process and grant for making Magnolia Manor Park, it is my first and greatest hope that you come to the final meeting June 8th (see info below in Nancy’s message), and see for yourself the Preferred Site Plan. I think you will like it! I am excited by what the community has asked for and how Site Workshop has worked creatively to give us a fun, thoughtful park plan that incorporates Magnolia’s first OLA and P-patches, and so much more! I am also so thankful for the work of The Sustainable Magnolia’s Steering Committee to get us where we are today!
And, this is just the beginning! We have formed a new steering committee of Friends of Magnolia Manor Park to carry out the next phase – a new grant that will result in design documents, cost estimates – and that plans for some fun events for the community at the Park. The new group is multi talented and enthusiastic, we have a graphic designer, landscape designer, event planner, and several valuable people from Steering Committee 1 who are continuing on in this important work. (See the list of members here)
You can make a difference…join us at the public meeting June 8th, join us as a member of Friends of Magnolia Manor Park, join us this summer for events like a birdhouse building workshop and learning about our native birds, the chili cook-off or participate in COLA’s Dogoween at Manor in October Park, bring your dog in costume and compete for prizes. Watch the park signs and this blog for work parties, family fun and fund-raising news.
One of our first priorities is to get the fences re-configured so that an additional 1 1/2+ acres can be used as park. We are asking for community support in the form of letters, ideas, and funds to accomplish this. Contact us via this website if you want to help with this important step.
So, as we finish the first phase of making Magnolia Manor Park…keep on following with us on the path to our Park! See you at the meeting!
Chair, Friends of Magnolia Manor Park
