Nearly four years ago, Lower East Side residents came together to advocate for the revitalization of Luther Gulick Park, a neglected public space on Delancey and Willett streets. The Friends of Gulick Park sponsored community-building events, hosted visioning sessions and raised $3 million for the project. Tomorrow night, the Parks Department, which incorporated community feedback into their design process, will go before Community Board 3 with a draft proposal. If you’re interested in seeing what they’ve come up with, CB3’s parks committee meets at 6:30 p.m. at the BRC Senior Center, 30 Delancey St. Once the community board weighs in, the Public Design Commission must sign off on the plan, so there’s still a long road ahead. But there is, at least, some forward progress.
