Feedback on Friends of the Waterfront Park:

This past weekend 120 Friends walked all 7 districts of the City. Significant number of undecideds in East Hill and Cordova Park. Of those we have decided in those two areas it’s 50-50 for/against the park.

Other districts have strong support for the Community Maritime Park – some walkers reported 50 out of 52 home visits in favor of the park. Especially strong support in the African-American neighborhoods.

Of those opposing the park – main argument is “I don’t go downtown so why should I care?” Some reported that if the voters were very over 70 years old, then they were against the park in most instances.
