In response, Community Board 2 will hold a Washington Square Park Speak Out on this issue on Monday, December 19, 6:30 p.m. at the NYU Kimmel Center, 60 Washington Square South, 8th Floor.

Members of the public are invited to attend this meeting and speak in favor or against the Parks Department’s actions. Representatives from the Parks Department and local elected officials will be invited to attend, as well.

This meeting will be followed up by a discussion of the issue at the CB 2 Parks Committee on January 4, 2012 (time and location TBD).
