-FEATURES -Perry Harvey Park Meeting Gets Heated When Cost Discussed BY AMELIA 'KIKI' HOWARD Sentinel Freelance Writer Members of the Perry Harvey Park Advisory Committee left the meeting outraged Wednesday night after rough financial estimates revealed that the cost of the project was $500,000 over budget yet the plans were the tabl e to spend $400,000 on a skating bowl. The committee consisting of: Fred Hearns, former city official; James Tokley, Bernadine White King, daughter of Moses White; Sonja Harvey McCoy, granddaughter of Perry Harvey, Sr.; Dorothy Han'ey Keel, daughter of Perrv Harvey, Sr.; 'Villie Robinson, owner of ihe .Jackson House; have heen meeting for about a year charged with the responsibili ty to ensure that the rich heritage and history surrounding Central Ave is "preser\'ed and represented" in the park named in honor of the late Perrv HaJ'\'eY, Sr. At meeting, committee members were pre sented a two dimensional layout of the completely redesigned park. From the outset, the Board's visio n wa s d ear ..... don't allow the histOJ)' of.this area to be forgotten. However when the proposed financial breakdown of the project was presented to the group, on the board their task was 111 vain. From the outset; the Board was split on re-including a skating bowl into the plan. Most felt the Central Avenue business and entertainment core tliat flourished in the late 18oos to the 1960s, was too valuable and sacred to include the 'Bro Bowl' into the new p;1rk. Central 1\ venue was the s1omping ground for names like Ray Charles, Ella Fitzgerald, Cab Calloway, s am Cooke, James firown, and a hos t of other musicians, sports figmes and artists of color who could not eat ot s leep in hotels 'for white s only'. And, the Centra l Avenue business district paved the way for over 100 Black entrepreneurs. Many of the committee members have a vested inter est in the restoration, because it wa s their fathers and mothers who paved the way for inany .in this community during the tough times of segre. ga.tion and discrimination. They WERE the young people of the 1950s .and 1960s and can rec all the many s tars who walk e d the stree t s of C entral FRED HEARNS ... Chairman of the Perry Harvey P:-rk Advisory Committee JAMESTOKLEY 1\vc. However, none ever recall riding their skateboards throug h Central Ave. Board members openly voiced thei1 objections and felt hoodwinked and lied to about the s46s,ooo price tag being earma;kcd for a skate bowl. According to James Tokley, "the largest cost item on the report was for the skat ing bowl. Th e AdvisOJ)' Board was not provided with the financial breakdown in advance of the meeting and felt that som e discussions beyond our committee took place Board membe r Bernadine White and members of the Harvey family challenged the developers, which includes Bank of America, the City of Tampa, Tampa Housing Authority, and Tampa Bay Engineering Group about the bowl's price tag, and why they were being hassled about the cost of an actual bust of Central Avenue icons ($so,ooo) a s opposed to a photograph of the l eade r s ($s,ooo). Aft e r that heate d debate, several board members threatened to resign and wanted thei r names taken off of anything to do with the renovated park. Brad Suder, the City of Tampa's Project Manager, tried to calm the situation by explaining that deception was n e v e r the intention. However, he explained that the City had a commitment that the park needed to be a good partner to the housing facility. WILLIE ROBINSON Demolition of Central Park Village will make way for the new Bank of America development project. He also said nearly 1,ooo e mails were sent from the skateboarding community to ensure that the skate bowl would be preserved Representatives from the TBE, Bank of America and the Housing Authority tried to extinguish the fire, explai ning that this was the first time the y had seen the figures as well, and urged the committee to remember that this was just an estimate. Some advisory members w e r e so shake n with anger that they made it cl ear that the y f e lt the r e w e r e stakehold ers with money and power that had their own agenda. Committee members felt they had already made enough compromise s and sacrifices, and made it c l ear that they would not compromise anymore. In the end the group decided to vote the idea of a skate bowl comple t e ly out of their budget, but not out of the park. The issue was not completely settled and will continue in the meeting on August 2oth. tllll<.: .loili I ,; ,\ t AGAPE MINISTRIES CHURCH OF GOD IN CHRIST 1 N. 34th St. Tampa, FlnritJa 33t.tll For 1\ EVANGELIST ROSEMARY GADSDEN & <.-.m m DR.
