Thank you, Gayle! I had not heard about this petition, which can be read
LIke you, I have no wish to see this estate turned into a park that will be
supported and maintained by the city.
Now that the era of endless economic growth and ever-increasing individual
prosperity is over forever, the sort of urban life and landscape which this
petition envisions seems to me to be unsustainable in the long term.
Let a group of wealthy nearby residents buy the estate and keep it as a
park at their own expense, if they wish to. No one is likely to have a
problem with that.
