As I have read the articles lately concerning the proposed skateboard park, I have once again become frustrated by the lack of action of our current city commission.
Why? Because I have just responded to another questionnaire given to candidates for Danville City Commission concerning our thoughts and opinions on a parking garage, skating park, finance department, etc. To me, these are non-issues in the sense that some of these questions pertain to matters that should be, or have been, decided and acted upon before the next commission takes office some eight months from now.
I can sympathize with the citizens of Crosshill Drive with their concern over an increase in traffic in their neighborhood if the skateboard park is put in Henry Jackson Park. I live on what I like to affectionately call "The Alta Avenue Bypass." However, this is the price my wife and I pay for our choice of housing, and we thoroughly enjoy both our neighbors and neighborhood.
