The City recently announced to the Rodney Reservoir Working Group that the Mayor had submitted a request for $2 million in state bond bill funding to build the resident-driven design for a new park at the Rodney Reservoir. The City also announced that they would do construction as part of demolition.

This is what we have been advocating for - for the City to fund the plan before they bulldoze the land! It is a huge step forward. The impossible becomes possible when we work together!


The City also recently told us they wanted to end the Rodney Reservoir Working Group. We need the Rodney Reservoir Working Group, which includes representatives from the city and community, to continue! The Rodney Reservoir Working Group has successfully coordinated the community park design process so far, and it should serve as a way for the community and City to collaborate during the construction phase so residents know what is being considered and have a chance to give input.

Click here to sign the petition to ask Mayor Purzykci, Wilmington City Council, Governor Carney, and Secretary Garvin of DNREC to fund the plan to build the park, continue to engage the community during the construction phase through the Rodney Reservoir Advisory Group, and take steps to keep us safe during demolition.
