Lawrenceville Stakeholders members voted to support the “Accordion Pool Party” event and proposed community design workshops to discuss the future of Lawrenceville’s public pool.

Susan Englert presented the concepts at the June 29th quarterly membership meeting of Lawrenceville Stakeholders. Members present voted unanimously to support both concepts and Susan was asked to request a vote via e-mail from the full general membership—standard operating procedure for this group. Once criteria for reporting were clarified with Councilman Patrick Dowd’s office on July 2nd, Susan posted a summary of both proposed events on July 3rd, and requested a vote by noon on July 7th, allowing extra days for the long holiday weekend.

Voting members were unanimous in supporting both the performance event – Accordion Pool Party at the Leslie Park Pool – and a series of community design workshops to be held in the Fall to discuss the Pool’s future. No negative votes were registered. Thus, in accordance with the organization’s by-laws, Lawrenceville Stakeholders officially opts to endorse both efforts.

Lawrenceville Stakeholders hopes to see the performance event come to fruition in September, and anticipates that this community event will spur an engaged, creative, transparent discussion about the future of a major community asset.
