I heard Dennis Huber whining about how much work it is to do the Environment Impact Report on the, so called, Community Park. He just can’t seem to understand why anyone would oppose this privately appointed board’s plans for large scale development right in the heart of Garberville. They’d like the freedom to have yet another large-scale concert venue, senior housing, bike trails, a skate-park, disc golf, ball fields etc, all stuff to serve the middle-class, the most over-served, and fastest shrinking segment of the population.
The board doesn’t mind spending over $100,000 on this, but they just can’t understand why people oppose any of their plans. Of course, these same people can all understand why we might disagree about a public restroom, or an emergency shelter, or public showers or a campground, and they have no plans to provide any of these desperately needed services at the park either. No, the park will only cater to people who have homes with running water, money in their pocket and toys to play with.
As long as the people with money around here continue to persecute the poor, and refuse to provide even the most basic services for those in need, I encourage everyone to oppose any plans to develop this alleged, Community Park.
If we can’t do more than bicker about a public restroom, we shouldn’t do any more than bicker about ball fields, skate-parks, concert venues or any of the other fanciful distractions for the clueless and indifferent middle-class.
