VOICE Meeting Focuses on More Green Space

A group working to make Evansville a better place. It's called VOICE, and tonight those voices are bringing up parks.
A group working to make Evansville a better place. It's called VOICE, and tonight those voices are bringing up parks.

One of the things the city needs, according to people who attended dozens of community meetings in Evansville, is more green space.

The mayor's plan to put a park on the former site of Roberts Stadium would mean more green space, but the city council doesn't seem to be on board with putting up the money to build the park.

"What we found is when we started calling people together to announce what was happening," said Leadership Evansville Executive Director Lynn Miller Pease, "we had 250 people coming out in the three meetings. 70 percent of the people that came out signed up and said they wanted to help. So, we think not only are we on the right topics, we think we got all kinds of people really excited and ready to help and make things happen."

Other VOICE action meetings are planned on efforts to bring more experiences to the city and development to the urban core.
