Thanks ya'll for your feedback. It's on our minds too.

how much?

Thanks you all. As Christine notes, we have some great trees planted at the playscape area -- about 20 directly around that area, but they'll need lots of time. Friends is researching possible solutions . Stay tuned.

Or maybe a couple of well-placed trees?

Yes please!

Yes! Great idea!

Absolutely agree

Thanks to the Way family for saying "We must" instead of "We can't."

Once again the Way family come to the rescue. Many thanks for your generous grant.

Amazing leadership!!

Great news. No debt for this $1 million.

Love that spot!

What is being missed here is the original estimations were to finance $4.5 million. Now, it is financing $5.5mil, even after the Way "loan". So this means the note payments are 25% higher than there were before the bids came in...the rates for the end-users. And if these rates do not cover the note...the city must pay them. This is NOT a good solution.
