Re: Please request status of our park renovation here

As we can all see the Von King Park Cultural Center has not completed.  In fact, has not even changed.


Remember that other areas get services because the people in that area write a lot.  We pay the same taxes and therefore must be aware of what is going on and stay vigilant.

Anyone that would like to collaborate on the unofficial nyc council videos project write to ralph@tidalforce.org

See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w3Bcjn_bsug for a video about the capital budget and parks.

It is truly amazing to listen to.

See also https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JIMHLqwO3YI&feature=youtu.be for an example of what can be done with the videos.  You can add and edit them.  Contact ralph@tidalforce.org if you have any questions.

This project will reconstruct the multipurpose room and fire alarm system at Von King Cultural Arts Center in Herbert Von King Park.

Project Update: The contract completion date has changed. Some of the common reasons why a completion date has changed are: issues with a contractor, design error or omission, unexpected field conditions, change in the scope of the project, pending approval and registration of change orders and/or inclement weather.

I've re-submitted the request for status of the Von King Park renovation.

Has anyone heard anything about the park renovation:

This is what I wrote:

We are a block association that is adjacent to the park.

Can you give us all a status.

It appears that the renovation is taking a very long time and it would be helpful to know what is completed.

Thanks

Ralph and the Van Buren Block Association

See below for details.

It would be nice if we had a friends of the park and found out the status of the von king park renovation.


I recommend that we all click and post a comment similar to this:

Hello my name is Ralph Yozzo and we have a block association on Van Buren St that dead ends  at the park near Tompkins Ave.  Can you tell us the status of the renovation.  Also can you post pictures of the current status.
The park cultural center has been closed so long that we do not even remember when it was open.
Can we set up a tour so that the constituents see the current state and track the renovation.
Thanks,
Ralph
