Betsy Head Park Community Discussion

On Saturday, June 4th, MAS is one of a group of organizations partnering with the Friends of Brownsville Parks to host a community discussion about short, medium and long-term goals for Betsy Head Park. This work is a continuation of a series of programs that MAS has organized in collaboration with the Brownsville Partnership, and an initiative of Community Solutions and the Brownsville Community Justice Center including:

  • Two annual Hope Summits, a series of town hall style public meetings inviting residents to influence and design strategies to address the immediate and long-term planning goals for Brownsville

  • A Livable Neighborhoods Program workshop series, giving Brownsville residents the knowledge they need to become stronger advocates for their communities

  • Designing Change, a youth program leveraging the transformative power of urban planning and design to foster development and neighborhood solidarity and equipping 15-20 young residents with the skills needed to act as agents of change

  • And some initial community engagement work around Betsy Head conducted during a cleanup day in October of 2015

The discussion will be held in the Betsy Head Pool gym, at 694 Thomas S Boyland Street, from 10am to 2pm. It is free and open to the public and lunch will be provided. If you are interested in volunteering to help please contact Joanna Crispe, Director of Neighborhood-Based Initiatives, at
