The Second Listening Session

Elliotte Rusty Harold was present for the second of two parks department listening sessions. He has written up a summary of the event on his website. I sounds like those who were present had the same feelings as the folks at the first meeting:

"What emerged from this was that nobody, nature folks or locals, wanted “active” recreation at the site. Not a single baseball field or cricket pitch showed up in the presentations. One group put in a small skate park on the very edge of the site since local kids had been asking for it (though I don’t think anyone under the age of 30 came to the meeting). Otherwise, though, the general feeling was that there were sufficient baseball fields and basketball fields already in the neighborhood."

You can read the entire report on his website.
