Letter to the Editor: Tract K options

Tract K options

Let’s see if a compromise on Tract K can work. We know that no building.

can take place for six years after the Eagles leave. So, what can be done in the meantime? Here are my thoughts.

Make nice with the school board — take the mowing off their hands and let Marco do it.

Try some relatively inexpensive ways to use the property that allows the Eagles their peace. Why not establish a walking trail and botanical garden around the outskirts of the property? The trail could have exercise stations on it, be made of natural material, not concrete, and be closed at sunset, so no additional lighting needed. If it is determined that lighting is needed — use lights powered by solar panels.

The botanical garden could be done by the garden club and other civic organizations and contain only native plants. This would create a natural sound barrier for the homes surrounding the property as well as educating citizens regarding planting on a barrier island.

If there is sufficient room, allowing for the Eagles, set up two off leash dog areas that would allow small dogs in one and large dogs in another.

These suggestions are certainly lower cost than a building and are easily reversible should a school ever be built on the property. Thank you.
