Council Member Rodriguez’s team will be starting at Broadway and Dyckman at 10:00AM. Volunteers will be cleaning parks and streets while also raising awareness of the importance of maintaining a clean community.
Across the City, many parks located in predominately underserved, Black, and Latino communities are being severely impacted by the Parks department budget and staff cuts. However, parks like Central Park have financial support from large conservancy groups like The Central Park Conservancy which raises more than 74 million in their annual budget. This year, the department of parks was cut almost $85 million. Council Member Rodriguez alongside elected officials, CBO’s, and community residents will be calling on the City to restore funding for parks located in underserved communities.
