The recently announced PEG cuts (5% starting October 1 and as much as 15% today by April) would be nothing short of devastating for our city’s parks system.  This would amount to a $75M reduction to an already strapped agency that has fewer workers today than it did before COVID.  We all remember the cuts from just three years ago and the conditions of our parks.

We need to push back. Yes, it is a challenging time for the city and there is a real crisis. But slashing the parks budget, tiny in comparison to other major agencies, is short sighted.

Rally and hearing: Wednesday, October 11 at 12pm

We will rally at City Hall Park on October 11 at 12pm before the Parks and Environment hearing at 1pm. Stay tuned for details and please help us get people there.
