I would like to express my appreciation for the board members and staff at the Parks and Recreation.
I attended the meeting Wednesday evening at the town hall. Those responsible for decision-making concerning this particular issue of the skate park have a big job.
After listening to the comments and suggestions and complaints, I realize more the weightiness of being in that place of responsibility. But I was very impressed with the way that the board and staff responded, not just reacting to some of the stronger comments, but with real maturity and wisdom and true care for all those concerned.
I feel confident they will make good decisions and I hope young and older people here will be supportive helping to be part of the solution and not of the problem.
We really need to count our blessings, which are many.
