More education needed on OCP changes

recent edition displayed the results of last week's question about use of designated parkland for a townhouse complex: Yes 57%, No 43%.

Today’s publication (July 20, 2012)  displayed the results of last week’s question about use of designated parkland for a townhouse complex: Yes 57%, No 43%.

The adjacent page contained a very well-written and researched rebuttal to the result of that question. It does seem to suggest the need for the education of Harrison residents (especially like ourselves who are new to the area) in order for them to know what exactly is being given away.

I am not implying that something underhand is being attempted here, rather that historic, and legal, documents be thoroughly researched prior to attempting to forge a new agreement which may oppose such aims. With the ever more persuasive arguments of “The Green Brigade,” it surely is incumbent upon us to use land appropriate and available for housing prior to removing land designated for parks, and therefore to the benefit of us all.
