Soccer fields forever

In our built-up city… A week or so ago our school district backed off and said they weren’t going to interfere with the developer’s plans for putting ten (at least it wasn’t 23 anymore) houses on the daycare site next to our street.  A subject on which I have gone on and on.

Tonight, they announced at the school board meeting that not only were they interested in buying it, they had entered into a formal agreement towards doing exactly that. From the developer–a little late, but hey.

Let the soccer games on the suddenly-available field begin. Our grandchildren will have room to run after all.

(There’s a meeting set for public debate before the offer is to be formally signed.)

People spoke up, people showed up, and people kept speaking and kept coming, and the city finally heard.

This is how it works. A developer buys the land, jacks the price up, then the taxpayers pay the inflated price for the property–when it could all have been done in the beginning for much less $.

In that first Parker pic, he looks like he’s getting ready for Christmas. Just think — it won’t be too many years before he is as tall (or taller) than Richard.

City Hall! Good fight!
