PlaySJ thoughts

Ideas from PlaySJ, the City’s recreation plan are being released.  Country94 reports that consolidation of recreation assets is a key part of the plan.

Consultant Todd MacDonald is referenced as explaining that there are a surplus of ball fields, baseball diamonds and playgrounds.

I, as a non-planner, agree that it makes sense that cutting back on the numbers of facilities would allow more attention to be paid to the remaining recreation assets.

I think it is important to maintain facilities in areas where lower income families live, to make sure that people with limited transportation options still have recreation opportunities.
