The Progress?- Then and Now- “Veterans Park” – Lorain Ohio
A celebration took place on the 200th anniversary of the “first business” in this area ( the Nathan Perry Trading Post) August 2007- celebrating the settlement that became Lorain.
You can find the photos of that day here:
Dan Brady has archived some of that history and in particular the War Memorial
JUNE 2011 found me once again writing about this park
“The homeless men ( one of whom apparently was groping himself – through his clothes as a female resident was walking through the park on a summer evening)settling down early in the evening so as to get the best bench- first come first served- ( what happened to the spacers so a bench could be made for sitting and not sleeping??)”
my conclusion at the end of that post 14 months ago
IF THE CITY OF LORAIN AND SOCIAL SERVICE AGENCIES INSIST ON BEING CHARITABLE THEN THE CITY OF LORAIN AND THOSE AGENCIES- SUCH AS THE ADULT PAROLE AUTHORITY – THE VARIOUS CHURCHES AND PROGRAMS- HAVE TO FOLLOW THROUGH WITH THEIR CLIENTS.
THERE IS A RESPONSIBILITY TO ALL WE DO AND THEY ALSO HAVE A RESPONSIBILTY TO THE REST OF THE THOSE OF US HERE IN THIS NEIGHBORHOOD! AND REMEMBER “those charitable organizations have paid directors and staff they are also a “BUSINESS”
Fast Forward to this week and another wonderful photo that of a collage of the park
The full story can be found in the two Morning Journal articles of this week.
But it is going to take more than foot patrols – it is going to take the City of Lorain to “clean up its property as well” including the missing lampposts, taking down the old hanging broken Christmas lights and removing graffiti and please put spacers in those benches.
The city needs to follow its own edicts what is good for the citizens with the Nuisance Sweep has to find the city not living in its own glass house
14 months of complaining falling on collective deaf ears……
Which picture do you prefer of this historic park ?
