I sat through the council’s Dec. 16 meeting twice (TV). My view: no one gives much thought to the whole. Council has not followed through with the “Trinity site” plan and the objector’s appear to be declaring that all the area between the four roads is sacred. Where is common sense!
It is unreasonable to consider the territory west of the former muni building as part of the “Ashley Pond Historical Muni Common.” From a city plat approach, it is just another block. There is plenty of room for a fairly large pavilion (not considered) for public activities where the muni building was. A row of trees between it and old muni parking lot would serve to define the Community Park. The parking lot allows for off-street parking for public events.
That area west of the tree-line is not “Ashley Pond Historical Muni Common,” nor is it the middle of “Santa Fe Plaza.” It is in another city block! Having a JPJ complex there is “grandfathered.” Downtown businesses get coverage EVERY time a patrol comes back to post. JPJ on Openheimer is not a “bad” location!
Let’s explore another side of the issue.
