Kenny Burch: When will the city maintain its property?

Advertisement

— To the Editor:

My letter is in regard to the land located north of Seventh Street owned by the city, known as Sherwood forest. It is my understanding that it was to be part of the park system. But, it now how become nothing but a dumping ground by some of the older kids, and a place for drugs, fighting and foul language. As a property owner in the area, I have had some problems occur with trash, things being broken on my fence, and then I have to put up with poorly mannered teenagers.

The city of Craig can tell us we have to maintain our property, but the question is, when will the city maintain theirs?

This does have effects on our property values.

I guess the little "weed commitee" is too busy driving around telling every body to mow down their weeds to notice. That area has been a trash hole ever since I can remember and I have lived here my whole life. Kenny-I dont know how you have put up with it this long, or any of the homes that border that part of the "park" for that matter. I have the same problem up by East 11th St. where all the teenagers go up onto the vacant land and party. They drive up to the top of the hill where they can't be seen from the street. It's nothing but a lot full of broken beer bottles and trash. Granted, it's not city property but the weed commitee don't care about trash, just weeds.

AHA! finally I won't be the first to comment on something. I took my smart ass pills this morning so here we go. Kenny if you call the D.A. office and let them know that there might be some teenagers over there that they can bust and then blea bargin with for a little extra income then the cops will be surrounding the area within seconds. Then with the new juvinile diversion program that the county has plans for the same creatine kids will have to clean their mess up.

The city has never taken care of Sherwood. They could turn it into a real nice trail walk if they wanted to. Maybe we should do a study on it. What ya think 50cal? That would be a good community service project for those that need to do that.
