Let’s put it simply. We do need the fields. In a way the Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Park is again – open space – in a way, just ready for a developers shovel.
But the Town’s proposed plan for TR Park puts the sports fields in the correct area of the park.
The easterly part of the park needs restoration and redevelopment.
While the sports field is great… it would be a sweeter deal if we were assured the other areas of the park would finally be taken responsibility for and restored.
It appears any piece of open land is hot for development.
Lets be sure – if everyone agrees to this plan, and it appears so - that we make sure the rest of the park is inviolate.
Well, as inviolate as possible.
Life is always throwing a horrendous case of need at us that necessitates changes.
Let’s truly say this is the last one we will have to endure.
