This is a wonderfully huge step forward the whole area is taking, but to finally make it happen, we'll have to find the money to fund the parking solution. That's why we're going to ask our supporters to start lobbying our elected leaders.
So at this Saturday's Cooper-Young Festival, CPOP will be passing out postcards for you to sign with a simple message: We want cars off our Greensward.
Come see us between 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. at booth E-16 in the parking lot between the Beauty Shop and First Congo.
Besides the postcards, we will also be selling this new t-shirt, which is the throwback design from the original Citizens to Preserve Overton Park but with the updated message, "Overton Park Forever" and updated colors of pink and brown.
