"Our Re-Rock the Parkways project began two years ago when, through CONO, we met our District 2 City Councilman Larry Bagley. He came, walked the area, met twice with groups of residents, and inspired us to organize. He also came to one of our potlucks last year and again inspired us to be proactive. CONO introduced us to City Landscape Architect Connie Parry who came, walked the area, and advised us on what needed to be done. More recently, she also advised us about coordinating with City traffic engineering and about specific materials to use. With CONO's help we had our first Dumpster Day in August 2016, and began raising funds. We had the weeds in the parkway professionally sprayed and began organizing the whole project of digging out and re-rocking. Our goal was to be finished by Labor Day, and, in fact, we finished September 1, 2017! "+
