We had another banner at event at Stage Fort Park a few weeks ago. I know we ask a lot of ECV members and our friends in the cycling community in the lead up to the race in the search for volunteers. Now I fear I need to ask yet another favor.
Residents of Ward 5, the home of Stage Fort Park have complained to the City. It’s unclear if this article and this editorial from the Gloucester Times is the source of this sudden interest in the post-event condition of the park. Regardless, after 14 years of racing in Gloucester, we’re now in a position where voices of support are important.
If you are so inclined, a letter of support is greatly appreciated. The “To whom it may concern” saluatation is appropriate as I would use these letters at various meetings with the City that are upcoming. Please also include your city and state in the letter.
My next meeting is November 7th, but supporting documentation needs to be sent to the clerk by the 31st of October.
Please send your letter to:

Beverly Farms, MA 01915
Many thanks for your continued support of the Gran Prix of Gloucester.
President, Essex County Velo
Race Director, Gran Prix of Gloucester
