Re: “The Life and Times of Dereef Park

For me, the biggest concern is the loss of green space rather than the concern of more college student or other high-density type of housing. Tim Keane writes that neighborhoods are "meant to be living, breathing, growing places. How do you do that if you don't provide new housing?" You do this by providing places where communities can come together. Green spaces do this, not dormitory style housing. Look at NY city. Do you think Tim Keane would vote to preserve Central Park? Not when you can develop and sell $$$ housing.

The only hope we probably have of forestalling this development is not public opinion. It is obvious that the developers and Keane don't care what the residents think. The best bet is the argument that the site needs to be preserved for it's african-american heritage, as a historical preservation site.
