    So $400,000 for a “park” that will remove trees but, be ADA compliant….but $zero to replace beach walkover 40 that the rain is washing out and making it almost unusable but the most steady on their feet.
    Makes sense I guess….

  2. Gerald Decker says:

    Well, it does make sense. Tree removal is a red herring issue for the planned park, which will benefit everyone when completed. Clearly, the city cannot maintain the current number of beach walkovers, so some need to be removed. Perhaps the Parks Advisory Board can address the problem and make recommendations. Also,civic-minded organizations could step up and fund the upkeep of one or more walkovers as a public service.

    The city had no problem building them to start with. Building something and not maintaining it is bad policy.
