Response To Supreme Court Decision?
From Bas Stevens. While passing by Jubilee Park at about 1245 hrs. today, I noticed City vehicles parked and a crew erecting wooden barricades on the south end of the park beside the parking lot.
I asked one of the crew members what was going on and why were the barriers being put in place. The response was, “This is a playground and cars park in the park”. My reply was, “the city loses a court case and now they are going to extremes”. There was no reply.
This is nothing more than paranoia and very small-mindedness on the part of certain people in City Hall. I think that they are afraid that the homeless may occupy the park once more and that by putting up these barricades they will act as deterrents to a 2nd occupation of the park.
The only time that I recall seeing vehicles parked beyond where these new barricades have been placed is during the Jam in Jubilee.
This is nothing more than overkill and, in my opinion, needs to be brought to the attention of all.
