Another prepared no doubt with slanted questions $$$ survey of only a tiny percent of ourRead Moreresidents? Why can't they just ask for letters, and, or place it on the agenda for two months before doing what they planned to do from the beginning? This all should have been done months ago before the developer came along to force a decision. This in no way would substitute for a downtown central park that could be used for so many events besides daily enjoyment of all who visit downtown and our Stardream fountain.

As I have been trying to point out an isolated spash pad will get old fast if there are not otherRead Morefe atures. That is why I recommended an artificial pond similar to the one in Rochester's park with a fountain. This could be used for hockey in the winter, in the summer provide a relaxing view, some light angling for the kids, and yes, I repeat, remote controlled hobby boats, sail boats etc. Now this would be a central attraction for the entire city. You could also have a green for putting practice. Shade trees nearby and a few picnic tables of course. Now you would have a destination park. Don't listen to the bomb throwers who attack me personally, listen to the idea and add a few of your own. Most importantly is to put like with like in a park, not to spread stuff all over willy nilly.

Ok ...... Only 9 holes is needed in Royal Oak, but the wrong golf course is being used for theRead Morepark Leave Normandy alone.....don't renew the Driving Range Lease and close Royal Oak G. C. And now there is a very large tract of property to develop for multi-purpose........shopping, housing, light industrial, parks and rec. Bob Hirzel

You make a good point as the ROGC is not centrally located and in a high traffic area heavilyRead Morecommer cial, however golf courses have always been limited obviously only to those who play golf, and add that the Normandy course is only nine holes so it is not suitable for professional games. Add that this shortsighted commission which will move mountains to bring in more bars is not willing to spend your money on a downtown park that would go a long way to making this a far more attractive city and not just a major pit stop for alcoholics and loud bikers.

Now this is life affirming and commendable. Hope you sell out quickly to our substantial tennisRead Moreplay ing community.

You are so right! I refrain from what I really want to say when I post too. How sad your commentRead Morewas posted on Independence Day. We are living under tyranny in America and a "fundamental transformation" of our country as it was Founded is succeeding.

The none, you are a laugh riot. You are a real life example of The Idiocracy that surrounds us.
Martie Schultz July 10, 2014 at 03:11 PM
Oh, Bob - you just proved your own point. Try looking up the word 'idiocracy' (Peculiarity ofRead Moreconsti tution; that temperament, or state of constitution, which is peculiar to a person; idiosyncrasy). I'm assuming you meant 'idiocy'. You, sir, are the real 'laugh riot'.
Bob July 11, 2014 at 08:53 AM
Oh, Martie, try looking up the movie Idiocracy. That unintelligible gibberish posted by the noneRead Morere minded me of the movie. You, ma'am, have a stick in your mud. Engish the none, do you speak it?
