I'd like to know what the point was of the bike trail that extends a whopping 5 whole blocks to nowhere in the historic district, taking out a lane for traffic...

Another fix for something that ain't broke. There is nothing wrong with the way the walking/biking paths are set up in the City Park. If you want to change something, change the roads back so you can go all of the way around the park without having to go out on to 23rd St. and back in on Park St. What was wrong with being able to drive the loop inside the park??? Newell, just leave the*****City Park alone before you **** it up too.

Yes! Let's spend more tax payer money on unnecessary projects! We all know that, the entire city has been worried about NOTHING more than the city park trails.

They need to put more bike lanes and walking trails (side walks) around the city streets and then maybe people would get out and enjoy the town.

They're not fixing the sidewalks we already have! How about we focus on the infrastructure that needs attention, rather than building new in an area where it's not needed?

I didn't say "in the park" Mack, repairing or adding "(side walks)" was one of my suggestions. Why did you disagree?

I think the park has plenty of walking space. It needs more green area.

Emulation is the most sincere form of flattery. Miss me? Or did Bobby need the ego boost with a name emulated to be me so he could feel everyone thinks so high of him. LMBO I guess if that is what he needs give it to him. LOL He sure needs something to keep his ego inflated lord knows t won't get any bigger.

Depot Street also has a new bike lane similar to the one on Juliana.

KOMBAT, I knew there was no reference to the park in your statement. I was disagreeing because there are sidewalks all over town requiring repair, and adding new sidewalks without repairing old ones just seems stupid. I do agree with you though, that the City Park has plenty of walking space and more green areas. Hindsight101, I refuse to engage in any dialogue with you. Your opinions and stances are so far out of touch, and you support anything and everything done by "your friend" without ever questioning the motivation behind it (which is what a concerned, informed citizen would do), while bragging about the breaks you supposedly get because of your connections (i.e. drunk driving around town) that it's pointless to have any sort of intelligent conversation with you. To the ACTUAL Hindsight..WELCOME BACK TO THE FORUM! :)

His Parks? He own them now? Why does he not own his failures? He sure has enough of them I guarantee that.
