Dear Editor:

“Our Park, Our Choice” was the mantra that was going through my head as I sat at the head of the room at The Friends’ first official meeting. I was impressed by the number of people that showed up, it was a room filled with about 75 concerned business owners, town residents and county residents sitting on the floor, chairs and standing in the back.

We reviewed a beginning outline of the People’s Plan and opened it up to public input. There were very insightful comments and great ideas to round out what we have already in the plan, which isn’t far from the original TTC plan before the chair lift was purchased.

We all want to work together with the parks and recreation department and our town council and hope that they can find space to hear our ideas in the future.

Thank you all for being there at The Friends of Reservoir Hill meeting and for taking your time to join in with what is a very important discussion about our town park.
