Park or Parking Lot?


In the 5 months since we last posted (sorry!), Overton Park has seen a lot of movement towards getting cars off the Greensward. The Overton Park Conservancy has commissioned a parking study for Overton Park, the Memphis Zoo has hired A2H Engineers for a parking garage study, influential Memphians have envisioned integrated transportation linking the entire Cooper corridor, and a City Councilperson has spoken out against parking on the Greensward.  There's no doubt that there's now a strong consensus to get the cars off the Greensward permanently and to find the Park, and the Zoo in particular, a modern way to park their visitors' cars.

This is a wonderfully huge step forward the whole area is taking, but to finally make it happen, we'll have to find the money to fund the parking solution.  That's why we're going to ask our supporters to start lobbying our elected leaders.

So at this Saturday's Cooper-Young Festival, CPOP will be passing out postcards for you to sign with a simple message:  We want cars off our Greensward.

Come see us between 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. at booth E-16 in the parking lot between the Beauty Shop and First Congo.



Besides the postcards, we will also be selling this new t-shirt, which is the throwback design from the original Citizens to Preserve Overton Park but with the updated message, "Overton Park Forever" and updated colors of pink and brown.


And for the first time, we will accept credit cards!
