Scope & Content The collection primarily contains materials relating to the potential building project for a hotel/convention center that would have been built next to Davy Park. This includes things like Meeting Minutes from City Council Meetings that happened during that time, newspaper clippings about the project and correspondence to elected officials and other politicians around the state looking for assistance.
Admin/Biographical History The Save Our Parks Campaign was established in the 1980's to oppose the building of a hotel complex that was to be built next to W.H. Davy Memorial Park in Moorhead, Minnesota, which was named for a former mayor of Moorhead. They also took a stance in local elections that was in favor of transparency for local government especially when working on projects that involve either large amounts of public funding or will have an effect on public lands. The hotel/convention center did not end up being built.
