City ‘strongly committed to protecting … Hartley’

“We are quickly zeroing in on a very strong plan that will make a better Hartley, not a different kind of park, not a metro-area kind of park, but the Hartley we know and love — but certainly more accessible, more sustainable and closer to its original natural condition.
