On the proposed Moyie Springs playground / recreation site
March 13, 2018

To the Editor:

I have been told I should look at the “hope and change” for “our” children that a playground/basketball/tennis court in Moyie Springs will bring. So, after the March council meeting, I sat down and pondered it.

Perhaps the area around the electric substation (already fenced, no worries) would be paved to provide an area to park while waiting to use the courts.

Be useful for the children to skateboard, ride bikes, ATV's and gather. Sidewalks added to North Division and side roads paved so the children don’t walk in the street.

Crosswalks with flashing lights to slow/stop traffic added so the children are safe. Perhaps a traffic signal at the intersection to mitigate the added traffic from the new housing development.

Of course, the playground/basketball/tennis court will need “infrastructure” like trash collection, bathrooms, lighting, water, wi-fi, cell service etc. It will require seasonal and daily maintenance so new city employees will have to be hired.

Wait, all that “infrastructure” is already in place at City Hall! Oh drat...the children would have to walk several blocks to get there.

Dang...where is that empty SPOT bus when you need it?
