Paww...Saw the new park picture on the GT blog recently, that was taken via the Lion's club. A tiny error or revision may have crept in. I think the property now is a bit bigger. At last word they were going to take the little house lying off of GT Road too. This the place to north of the large refurbished residence.
From what I read off the newsletter, most all is correct though. 'cept the 5 (initial) million dollars for purchase of land, demolition and the improvements were not mentioned. That is a high figure too. If the City only gets $3 then the remainder is to be used for PARK purposes. Seems everyone automatically assumes the City will receive the high figure.
The Lion's information was posted as is due to the fact that Not Everyone in GT is a member of the Lions Club. However, the Lions have a significant influence upon Council Members and Council Decisions. So what is being represented to them in regards to City Business is a PUBLIC matter.
The opinion of the Blog has not changed, 3 Million or 5 Million. No new property should be purchased. No property should be purchased from Doug Jacobsen for any purpose.
