Why does Alpine need an overwhelming, all-in-one park that will cost so much in so many ways when existing facilities are underutilized and poorly maintained?
How can anyone believe this 25-acre, oversized park won't overwhelm the rural, natural location, and surrounding neighborhoods?
Other than to meet County-wide metrics and because space allowed, how do planners justify doubling the size from the originally planned 12-15-acre park?
Do we want a “drive to" park located far from the populated town center and other community resources such as schools, public transportation, library, community center, and local businesses?
What about the dangerous automobile ingress/egress and increased automotive congestion throughout Alpine?
What about the challenges for children, equestrians, runners, dog walkers, etc. reaching a park that is only accessible via dangerous South Grade Road or Wright’s Field Preserve?
What will the introduction of noise and nighttime light pollution do to the area?
When drought is an ongoing concern, why are they including extensive grassy fields and landscaping?
If maintenance relies on volunteer organizations to ensure proper upkeep, who are those groups or individuals?
How can the fire safety/risk from BBQ pits and human causes be denied?
Do we really want a raised landscape berm that blocks views of Wright’s Field Preserve, sunsets, and nature?
Will non-park access to Wright’s Field from South Grade Road be eliminated?
How can safety and security challenges for an isolated 25-acre area be eliminated?
What will be the fees for usage (parking, rentals, etc.)?
If groups can rent certain facilities like the skate/all-wheel park, how is this fair for those that cannot afford rental fees?
Where are the studies on the fiscal sustainability and potential tax impact for Alpine residents?
