Save Red Bank Central Park

Mission Statement
of the
"Save Red Bank Central Park" Movement
Our mission is to protect all 12 acres of the old Red Bank Middle School property in public ownership, as a central community treasure for the common good. 

We are a self-motivated group of Red Bank, Tennessee, residents united by our mission.  We are challenged by some short-sighted city leadership that prefers to sell this irreplaceable public asset for private development and an ephemeral cash windfall to the city budget.   We are working to promote the idea that a first-class Red Bank Central Park could be the community anchor that revitalizes our town's energy, culture and economy.
The goal of this website is to foster an informed public debate about public space, underutilized commercial properties, and the fate of the old Red Bank middle school property.  This site will become the go-to public clearinghouse and comprehensive resource for factual information, documentation, analysis and perspective about the future Red Bank Central Park. 

Our small town has only 0.87% of our land area in public parks, pitifully short of the 9.3% national median for city park acreage.  Red Bank has no central public park capable of supporting town festivals, markets or celebrations, nor for the simple quality-of-life functions of attracting the people to relax and recreate together.  The 12-acre site of the anticipated Red Bank Central Park is the very last opportunity in our tiny landlocked town to develop a 1st-class central commons that lifts the people and our city. 

Our strategy is to create a vigorous public awareness campaign that fosters an informed, visionary and energized citizenry to engage decision makers.

Our objectives are to:
1.  Create a comprehensive repository of facts and reference materials at SaveRedBankCentralPark.Org;

2.  Gather, analyze and present the facts, data, and perspectives;

3.  Raise public awareness with signage, social media, advertisement, live events, and other visible techniques; and

4.  Mobilize and inform park friends and users to be heard and seen throughout every step of the upcoming civic decision making process.

Funds raised will go to defray the costs of creating and operating a website; printing signs, bumper stickers and banners; hosting public rallies; posting advertisements, contracting specialized services, and similar informational and awareness actions.
