Pioneer Park

Thanks to Rita Moore and fellow members of the Open Space Conservancy Trust for opposing the cutting of trees in Pioneer Park in order to provide room for more power lines. I am so glad that we have a group of citizens who are watchdogs for Pioneer Park. As a South end resident, I am willing to cope with another power outage to save our trees, which are irreplaceable. A week without power was a wake-up call for us to stack up on firewood, get battery-powered lamps and a portable butane camp stove. That’s not much to save a beautiful part of the park. At least we have not had any recent proposals to turn the park into a golf course, which has happened in the past.
