No to LBP memorial
July 27, 2010 · Updated 10:55 AM
I am writing in regard to the memorial for Steve Haba that is proposed for Luther Burbank Park. The plan is to place it at the extreme north end of LBP on a pristine, grassy meadow. The memorial is to be a large 20-by-40-foot, almond-shaped cement pad. A facility of this nature does not comply with the existing park policy and Luther Burbank Park Master Plan. The plan states that only single benches and trees can be added to the park. Therefore, such a facility would detract from the existing green characteristics of the park. As such, it is highly desired that such a proposed memorial not be recommended.
