Correspondance, Pleasant View Fieldsage o Georgia Jackson - Pleasant View Fields (PVF) ;°~ From: "Gordon Westdahl" <IogowestC~3msn.com> ~ To: <~acksongC~3ci boulder co us> Date: 1 /30/2001 7:09 AM Subject: Pleasant View Fields (PVF) Dear Ms Jackson, Thank you for your response to my inquiry I would appreciate your forwarding a copy of a letter that I recently sent to the Parks & Rec Department, to the Advisory Board members I was tempted to attach a number of art~cles that have appeared in the Daily Camera, including a recent article by Clay Evans, but mstead I suggest the board visit the Camera's web and peruse both sides of the commentary on this sub~ect I still don't understand how this pro~ect was authorized. I remember voting on a bond issue to acquire and develop parks, but I am not aware of any exclusive use by any group Thank you for your ass~stance ~ ----------------------------------°------------------- CoPY-------------------------°--------------------- January 17, 2001 Ms Cns Dropinski Boulder Parks & Recreatton Sub~ect Pleasant View Fields (PVF) Dear Ms Dropinski, I would like to add my voice to that of others who are discomforted with the prospect of fencing PVF and subsequently denyinq community access. It is very hard for me to support exclusrve use of a facility that, to best of my knowledge, was acqwred and developed with tax- payer funds Furthermore, it is my understanding that ma~ntenance of this facility is only partially funded by user fees I appreciate the difficulty and challenges that your department has to deal with regarding abuse and vandalism of our parks and recreation faculties, but that in its own right is not ~ustification to exclude the public use If the tax paying public desves to have public amenities then there must be sufficient budget dollars to maintain these faalities and enforce reasonabie rules and regulation Respectlully, ~ ,~ file //C \WINDOWS\TEMP~GW }00001 HTM 2/6/2001
