A revitalized  Riverside Park (properly connected to the highly successful river walk) would be one of the best things to happen to our community in SW Detroit… instead we are still getting big $$$ trickery and deception – please read the following from former state rep Rashida Talib and consider signing the petition etc…

The deal that Mayor Duggan is entering into with Matty Moroun with Riverside Park is an injustice to our community. We worked so hard to take back our park and hold companies like the Bridge Company accountable to all local, state and federal laws. With this deal we get more trucks! We deserve better than this deal that allows a company that has lied to the federal government (yes it is in writing) about their new twin bridge. They have attempted to circumvent the law to avoid environmental processes that protect our children and families in the neighborhood. This about Matty’s best interest, not our community’s. – RASHIDA TALIB
