Benton Harbor residents will have two chances this week to learn more about the new Benton Harbor Parks Conservancy. The conservancy board will hold a pair of town hall meetings Tuesday and Thursday nights at 7 p.m. at Benton Harbor City Hall. The creation of the group was announced last week thanks to the efforts of Wilson Chandler of the NBA's Denver Nuggets. The Benton Harbor native had approached the city a few years ago to adopt and take over Union Park, and the discussions led to a much larger project to establish a non-profit to manage a dozen parks in the city. The conservancy is made up of area residents, clergy, elected officials and business leaders.
