Just got my newist request for donation in the mail, from the friggin' people who are goin to redo the Mill River Park! Now I do not feel that it is a bad thing to redo the park, however there were a few surprises.
1) 40% of the cost WILL BE TAXPAYER MONEY!
2) Since they are soliciting donations, that means they DON'T have the other 60%!
3) Their proposed start has been delayed because one of the contractors who bid is challanging the who was rewarded the contract.
Okay, I actually like the park, hate the dam and would love to see a real walk/bike way along side the river. This of course should be conected to the northern extention so we could actually do some real biking in the area. I have absolutely no opinion on the trees. To me they are beautiful in the spring and wouldn't know a diseased tree from a healthy; an old tree from a young one.
On the other hand, I don't thnk the economy warrents spending money for these kind of improvewments right now. Do you think we could wait a year or two?
It's like Christmas in January!
