Save the Harrison Community Center meeting scheduled for Tuesday, Jan. 22

Another Public Meeting to “Save the Harrison” Community Center!Lincoln Park community organizations and local non-profits will host a forum to discuss saving the Harrison Community Center.

The Lincoln Park Business Group, along with other community organizations, residents, and local non-profit organizations, is hosting another event to “Save the Harrison.”

It is a meeting of collaborative partners that believe the Harrison Community Center is worth repairing after it was damaged by a fire last July. The forum will include presentations by the collaboration on what programs are held at the center and how they positively impact the lives of Lincoln Park residents.

City-council members and Mayor Ness have all been invited to this event. We currently have several commitments by council members to attend. The public and anyone interested in helping the “Save the Harrison” campaign are also invited.

The city architect, Terry Groshong, is currently getting bids for the project and construction will hopefully begin soon. The final step in the process is getting the city council and Mayor to approve the spending.

The forum will be held on Tuesday, January 22, 2008 at the Holy Trinity Church on the corner of 27th Avenue West and Third Street. Refreshments will be served at 6:30 p.m. with the presentation following. Don’t miss this great opportunity to show your support for the Harrison Community Center! Everyone is welcomed and can get more information by contacting Heath Hickok at 727-6573 or via email at HeathHickok at lpbg dot org.
