No decision yet on North Annex future; NA-FC Parks Department wants Community Park to remain intactSound familiar? That's because we were discussing it on July 15: Is Floyd County seeking to develop up to 18 acres of Community Park? The discussion rather prematurely ended with this comment from Jeff Gillenwater.
... Ted Heavrin, president of the county council, said no decision has been made about the property’s future. He said the layout of the area will limit development.
“You can’t build under power lines ... they should know that,” Heavrin said of the parks board.
Heavrin said before anything is decided, all parties involved will have a meeting.
I appreciate your time, Don (Lopp), but that really doesn't answer my question. You mentioned that the original thought was to make 4-6 acres available but that preservationists requested an expansion to 18 acres.
Why? What is someone going to do with 18 acres that they couldn't do with 4-6? Is there an entity proposing something specific that requires more land? What thinking led to the expanded offering?
Given their abysmal communication record lately, it would be helpful for the public to know what's happening on the preservation front *before* any governmental commitments are made.
So, what's really happening? Give that wheel a spin, will ya?
