The Herald is so wrong on their endorsement of the changes to our charter's Article 7.
Wow. So disappointed in these positions that support privatization of public lands, development in protected natural areas and cannibalizing our meager public parkland for library buildings. Neither library or park advocates support that referendum.
We need more libraries fully funded, more parks and full protection of our natural areas, like the Pinelands in Camp Matecumbe and Richmond Pinelands ( where the same County Parks department wants to give forested parkland to a theme park operator which wants taxpayers to pay nearly $150 million in upfront development costs. )
Commercialization and development of public parklands just further erodes our quality of life and deprives future generations of green space and natural areas in an increasingly dense and urbanized city.
(I totally agree with Blanca Mesa)
