I don't know if it's a walk at the Towne Lake Park, a visit to the Third Mondays trade days flea market, or just strolling the neighborhood listening to birds and watching for butterflies with my binos, but this day shall not be lost.
Next week they're having a meeting about whether to do something about lowering our neighborhood Glendover Park pond to stop overflow into the "Twin Creeks" development next door to our little subdivision. The blue flier we received had murmurs of dark doings (guess where the mayor lives, drained ponds and mold, etc.).
I am not a good rabble rouser anymore.
Folks on both sides of issues want to have
meetings when I'd really like to see a dependable engineer's report instead on whether a two bit pond causes the problem in a flash floodish area like ours. If so, fix the problem--even if one has to lower the pond. If not, let's talk about some more nature trails instead, and spend less time on pond draining. Also, are there fish in that pond? That's what I want to know.
