Skate park will ruin area

Dear Editor,

Yesterday my wife and I attended the benefit concert for Self Help at Fuller Lodge. As we left and walked in the area, we both felt (along with several other folks walking that way) that the already begun construction of the skate park (plaza?) was a horror and would soon destroy the trees and make an ugly scene.

That view, I’m sure will be seen by some as another anti-youth view an unfortunate piece of fallout from the division the leadership of this county has caused by its perpetrating the division in the community with no real accountability on its part.

I found the Monitor editorial on Sunday to be on target, though the horse is probably out of the barn on the skate park development already.

What is important, however, is the manner in which county leadership has behaved not only toward a significant amount of its citizens, but its boards as well. Obviously, the vast majority of council is confident they know better!

I would urge my fellow citizens to be quite mindful of this in the upcoming election and elections to come and to inquire of candidates whether they are satisfied with our government’s processes of hearing the voices of our community.
