Egg Hunt in VVP
Thanks to Marc Wesson and the Friends of Van Vorst Park for a festive day of egg hunting, face painting, coffee and snacks!!  The VVPA Board Members and friends were there to help with the set up and stayed around to watch the little bunnies hopping to find their treasures.  The golden eggs were found but even without the golden egg–kids and adults had a great time!!

Bright Street Redevelopment Plan-

VVPA Board members attended the City Council meeting on Wednesday to hear the first reading of the ordinance adopting amendments to the Bright Street Redevelopment Plan.  Steve Fulop mentioned there might be issues with the amendments to the plan and asked that we send the council members, via email, our concerns.  The Board members will draft a letter and send it out next week. Thoughts, comments and questions can be sent to VVPANEWS@gmail.com  Deadline Wednesday April 17th.
