Overton Park

From EHDA’s President, Wain Rubenstein:

“I just want to thank everyone who came to the council meeting on March 1, and those who spoke. Also to the Evergreen Board for your support.  It was very gratifying to not only see Evergreeners there, but people from from all over Midtown, and other parts of the city. A special thanks to Carrie and Gene who have worked so hard on the legal side of this.

To say the least, we are all disappointed in the outcome, but I am the eternal optimist, and feel in the end we will prevail. We are on the side of right. It may not be everything we want, but I think we will gain some measure. Maybe I’m being naive, but I truly believe that.

I’m not sure what the next steps are, but this will be on the agenda for the Evergreen board meeting next week. Once again thanks to all.”
