Our Thoughts on the Matter…
BOPC regularly prepares public comments and position statements on issues that may impact the historical integrity of our Olmsted Park System; which includes 6 parks, 7 parkways and 8 circles. Statements are developed through a Committee and Board process and address issues of preservation and restoration, quality of life, environmental health, cultural resources, and public access. The BOPC’s advocacy efforts work to ensure our mission and to uphold the proliferation of these natural historic assets for generations to come. The following are BOPC’s public comments and position statements on key projects and hot topics in our Olmsted parks.
