Thanks Nydia for the link. I went back and watched the video and watched the discussion from the park board meeting after I left. I was happy to hear my fellow park members reiterate my sentiments about the abrupt change in plans.
I like it that Nydia has put the entire conversation in one thread because it shows clearly how our current system was not used at all by Commissioner Bell. The same commissioner that is wanting to go back to 1995 to ensure all policies were adopted correctly, completely circumvented the process himself, and went straight to the BOC to foresake the original design and change the construction plans for Lanierland.
Watch the video when the park board members are just baffled how this happened. Chairman Gardner said, "We didn't get to recommend it in the beginning. They're not consistent with how we do this. We didn't get to recommend anything on this. The procedure should be the same," Chairman Charlotte Gardner complained - taken from video on the aboutforsyth.com site.
One park member said so do the neighbors have any idea what's coming or I hope they won't mind all the lights. I'm not saying the community doesn't want an equestrian facility but I know the booster clubs, neighbors, and community have not been informed about it.
If the park board had never had a word mentioned to them, why would anyone think that input had been sought from the community?
