It wa~ noted that the property <br />was acquired for this purpose from Gas Tax Funds. The Recreation <br />Commission had recommended that it be a mini-psFk similar to the one at <br />Baldwin Stocker Park on Lemon Avenue and that it not contain ball <br />diamonds or tennis courts. It was noted for the record that only three <br />Recreation Commissioners had been present at the meeting when this <br />matter was acted upon. Some discussion held on the possibility of <br />constructing tennis courts at the subject site ,as there is a lack of <br />facilities of this nature in the southern portion of the City. <br /> <br />The City Clerk read a letter which had been filed along with a petition <br />containing 88 signatures from residents in the'vicinity in favor of the <br />mini park at this location. <br /> <br />Mayor Hage declared the hearing open and Mrs. Leonard Henkey, 230 E. <br />Camino Resl, read a prepared statement in opposition to the park, <br />setting forth in part the revenue the City could derive from the <br />property if it were dedicated to residential development which was <br />the primary reason she and her family settled in the City... for its <br />residential atmosphere and character. She felt the public sentiment <br />should hsve been obtained in the beginning, that if 'the City proceeds with <br />the mini-park it will downgrade and reduce the'value of the adjacent <br />properties and submitted reasons therefor: increased traffic, parking <br /> <br />8-1-72 <br /> <br />- 1 - <br />
