Nominations due tomorrow for park success stories
The City Parks Alliance (CPA) is seeking nominations for a new feature on their website that will highlight a new “Frontline” park every month during the year of 2012. Parks will be selected based on their leaders’ contribution to “creating economic, environmental and social capital through new kinds of partnerships.” Groups or entities stewarding these parks toward excellence will be recognized as examples in the national urban park community. CPA’s goal with the feature is to showcase a large spectrum of park models, unrecognized stewardship success and “local flavor.” The application is due December 14th–tomorrow!–and selected parks will be notified in January.
