Right now, Esther Place is only closed temporarily. That means the City could at any time decide to shut it down.
Why It Matters
If Esther Place was officially made permanent, we could apply for grant money to install lighting, public seating, trees, shade structure, art, and more. And, the space would be safe, and always there for you, any time.
