RES PH 21-62 4/21/2021 6:14 PMMelissa Wenzel For I support this resolution. This parkland is zoned industrial & infrastructure is lacking for it to be a safe, accessible, & usable park. The existing activities serve critical needs: managing the removal/storage of diseased/downed trees (city saves $), the mulch is a free energy source @ District Energy (more $ savings), soil staging area needed for water main replacements (a growing issue). True: the east side has had neg. impacts, but W7 has THE MOST parkland in the city, & we’ve seen increases of formal (accessible) parkland: Bruce Vento (27 ac), Henry Park (11 ac), Highwood Bluff (8 ac), Highwood Preserve (13 ac). Battle Creek/Mounds Park Master Plans have great ideas for + change too. A wise public servant said: “people may have a hard time with a pattern change that may provide more improved, & better long-term benefits but often reject the pattern change because it is different from what they may be used to. We must look beyond & see if the change may help in the long run.” +1
RES 21-324 4/21/2021 5:44 PMMelissa Wenzel For I will be providing more comment on Res 21-62 and believe that both resolutions should be connected/read in order (and feel that Res 21-62 should come first). That said, in order to provide the critical city-wide (and local ward) needs of the city, I am for this resolution. Please see Comment on Res 21-62 for more details as well as my "why." +1
