AJM - Thanks for the reply, but let's be sure to stay focused. The question that remains is...is the proposed Mackle Park expansion justified? Bringing up off site vacant strip malls & city center locations is taking this off the path. The current park has space, there are obvious advantages in considerations for expanding on-site, so let's evaluate what's on the table based on the factual information.
I take issue with the referenced link on the single role of government, it's myopic and limited, which is far from "great". If we lower the bar on what our government should provide to it's citizens for our taxation contribution, we will surely be delivered a poor result. Don't fall prey to this limited perspective. Raise the bar, expect more, and recognize that a community and city will draw in residents and visitors based on what it offers beyond just "protection", so if we wish to keep this city and area in demand, retaining the value of our community, homes, residents, we need to expect more, not less.
Granted, I think there are aspects of the proposal that may not be justified, but that shouldn't mean the whole proposal and consideration should be axed. Let's consider this on its merits and evaluate what works, what doesn't and where the compromise resides.
Again, although I may not agree with all your inputs, I'm glad to see the engagement and discussion. Thank you.
