I get mail from the Community Earth Network and Sierra Club. They both had this Monroe Park/Choctaw Point note. It might be interesting to attend and others in the club might want to also. I may go Saturday, February 8. Here's the info:
Monroe Park/Choctaw Point
Monroe Park used to the end of the trolley line and the beginning of an entertainment area like none other. Set on the coast of Mobile Bay, it would make the perfect area for recreation, but the State Docks wants to turn it into a container facility. The local Sierra Club has made keeping Monroe Park one of their main issues over the last several months. Now the State Docks is offering a tour of this area, as well as Choctaw Point, and it's a great opportunity to not only view this endangered piece of greenlands property, but to also have a chance at talking to those involved in the fight over it.
The visitation dates are Thursday, January 30, 2003 and Saturday, February 8, 2003. The tours will be held from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. The tour will assemble at 8:45 a.m. in the lobby of the International Trade Center, located at 250 N Water Street; parking is available in the Trade Center's parking lot. Reservations are required; contact Mary
Mullins at Mary@bellwether-group.com or 433-3993 (ext 201) to reserve your space. Mary has also said that if spots fill up too quickly, they will make more tours so everyone can go.
The Sierra Club has chosen to visit on the 30th; the Community Earthians are planning a tour on the 8th.
