In response to the horrific attack on an older longtime park user and an increase in active drug use, FPC hosted a public meeting with officials responsible for management in the park and at the Shattuck. More than 200 people logged on. If you missed the conversation, you can listen to it here.
FPC will continue to work with police, Parks Dept staff, Shattuck leadership, and other agencies that can help make a difference and bring safety improvements to the park. We will report back via this website and our newsletter. Scroll down on this page to sign up if you do not already receive it.
