Join your neighbors at St. Barbara’s Church at 1505 Denison on December 17th at 6:30 pm to discuss the remediation and renovation of W.C. Reed Park. Previously, there had been series of meetings concerning the renovation and upgrading of the park. Plans were made to create a walking trail, upgrade the playing fields, add a community garden for the Foster Point residents and the neighbors in close proximity, to move the baseball fields,and to eliminate the tennis courts although tennis is making a come back as a quality exercise.
Those of us who have lived in Brooklyn Centre are well aware that the park is landfill. Many years ago, a ravine and stream were covered with debris from the Cleveland Transit System which owned the land. I believe that resident’s of Barbarowa have said that when the Jennings freeway was constructed, the area was used for debris.
Certainly sounds to me that as a community we should be concerned with how this project and remediation will be handled since schoolchildren are in close proximity each day as are many of our neighbors plus we all know how the winds in this area pick up the dust so prevalent here and then, swirl around us.
Please attend this important meeting. Continue to show how we all care about the health of our community.
