After the fire this summer, I thought it would be obvious that spending $5 million for ice rink improvements in a canyon that burns every 11 years would be a bad idea. However, the project continues to creep forward along with grandiose plans to build a teen center, civic center and improve the golf course (another $35 million combined). There are many flaws in the current CIP process and my main concern is the failure to address long-term community needs. I serve on the Parks and Rec board so I will specifically mention recreation needs and also clarify that these opinions are my own.
First, we need an ice rink that can support a consistent skating season and it is doubtful that a cover is sufficient or even appropriate at a site that is surrounded by endangered species and likely to flood. Second, our community does not have enough indoor space to meet the current needs of all our outstanding recreation programs.
