Update on my efforts to have theCentral ParkConservancydiscontinue theapplication of pesticides in and aroundCentral Park.
I requested via voice to Neil Calvanese, VP of Operations, that I be made aware of the Conservancy’s plans in 2010 with respect to pesticide application. (I had previously been told by Mr. Calvanese that pesticides would be used in the spring of 2010)
I also requested that I be given reports of all pesticide activity in 2009. Finally I requested to be heard by the Conservancy.
All of my requests were denied.
While remaining civil and professional, Mr. Calvanese did reaffirm his position that while they will explore other options, pesticides will continue to be part of his arsenal. (his word, not mine)
Until further notice, the poisonings will continue.
