Dear Friends:

As many of you already know by now, no substantive decision was made by the Board of Supervisors last Tuesday. Yes, they asked us to come back again to give our comments on the proposal to close County parks.

I encourage everyone to attend and/or write your Supervisors and urge them to keep our parks open as well as urge them to keep Lost Lake Park largely as is. I think we can all agree that Lost Lake does not need soccer and baseball fields and those athletic facilities which the park currently has are rarely used. Remember, athletic fields have the same environmental impacts as a golf course. Such facilities would be more useful to the community if located closer to an urban area. I also encourage everyone to restate their opposition to any kind of lease agreement with Table Mountain.

The meeting will take place Tuesday, February 3 at 9 a.m. - Hall of Records in Downtown Fresno.

Meeting Agenda
Support Documents (very interesting - judge for yourself)
Board Website (contact info. and more)
