Funny picture in the Bee’s report on the fence controversy in River Park:
Are the “Stop the Fence” crowd asking to have the existing fence taken down as well?
I’m not sure where I stand on the whole thing. If the residents were alarmed at being asked to pay for it, that would be one thing. But statements like “If they can, the whole river will be caged in, in a matter of years” make this sound like a middle school student council debate. If I lived down there, I don’t think I would like the look of a fence across that entire park, but then again I honestly don’t like the look of the folks the fence would be designed to keep out after dark.
Sac Bee commenter “marvsimmons,” who says “If you don’t want to put up with the negatives of living next to a park, don’t buy a home next to the park” sums it up pretty well. How is this handled in other neighborhoods adjacent to wildlife access, like Ancil Hoffman or William Pond?
What about River Park residents who are also Sac Rag residents? What do you think?
