In this age of Internet, grass roots efforts can greatly help causes like the two we have to protect and extend Flood Park. Please spread the word to your own friends, family, and co-workers about our efforts to save Flood Park’s beautiful historical woodland. Send emails, use text messages, and even bring it up in conversation.
Let your neighbors, your HOAs, your friends and family know of this effort to save the nature of Flood Park while still providing usable sport fields for youth and family activities.
Let them know about this FloodPark.org website. From there, they can learn much more. There are action buttons that will allow them easily to get to our two petitions.
Visit the Action webpage: Direct actions, emails, and handouts
Available DIY Print Handouts
On the Action webpage, there are several handouts that can be printed and distributed. Thank you for helping! Please download, print, share via email and social media. If you can post these on kiosks or at market community boards, this will help.
Please Contact County Management
Our County Supervisors, Manager, and Parks Director can greatly improve the work to be done at Flood Park. That means they can make the changes to have the sports fields on the eastern ‘sports field’ side of the park and keep the nature of the woodland side of the park by preserving the trees.
This doesn’t happen without your help in sending emails and attending meetings. It takes your voice for County to realize that it makes sense to:
- Extend the park by using the old school to add soccer, lacrosse, basketball, and other sports
- Preserve the parks central feature, the historic Heritage Grove that is set to be cut down unless they act
- Protect the full capacity of the treasured picnic areas, volleyball, and other amenities that are planned to be severely reduced unless we take and get positive action
The Action webpage has email addresses and samples of comments others have made. The following email links are on that Action webpage, but are provided here for convenience. By clicking these e-mail links, the County Board of Supervisors and the Ravenswood City School District, email addresses will auto-fill an email to start the process. Just add a subject line and your comments in the body of the email. Please act right away as County is making decisions now. They should do so with our input! Thank you for helping!
