“Proposal to sell parks property goes to city committee.” Since Slie’s pre-K tax proposal has properly failed he is doing everything he can to obtain funds to funnel to developers including city assets. The tree huggers will be all over this in a very short time.
“The city's Parks and Recreation director said these properties are underutilized.” Since the city does not maintain infrastructure this statement is no surprise. Neighborhoods would be using these beautiful parks if the city would use citizens tax dollars to maintain them. Anything not located downtown always gets the shaft when it comes to being maintained.
