I found the picture you selected for this quite interesting. Hopefully, that picture isn't going toRead More be representative of what will happen now that it is so easy for anyone with some flammables and a match to set a fire in and around our neighborhoods and open land spaces. I wonder if the new fire chief was on board with this? Has anyone asked that?

The dog park proposal that the township's citizens committee will put forward soon should be a greatRead More starting point in bringing a dog part, equestrian center and community garden element to fruition. I along with other members of the Parks Commission look forward to seeing their work. This job can be time consuming not only from a planning standpoint. Gaining resident consensus is difficult at best but very worthwhile in the long run. With about 11 years on the commission I think I can appreciate how difficult these processes are. Even though fellow commissioner Ann Marie Rogers and I don't always see eye-to-eye on topics, I do wish her and her committee well in tackling this tough project. I am convinced that the majority of the parks commission will be there to support our residents desires' for Watershed Ridge. In the past, parks and recreation has conducted resident design forums, public hearings and open houses for these type of projects. At no time has the Parks Commission ever expressed to my knowledge the notion that Parks can do whatever it wants. The commission's track record more than proves otherwise.

Joe, Sorry that my comment was unclear. The resident was conveying that a Board of TrusteesRead More member was making a comment that I paraphrased "Parks can do whatever they want" as a disparaging remark about Parks and Recreation Commission's perceived arrogance. The resident was definitely not saying that Parks and Recreation had that attitude. He was saying that it was an opinion of a Board of Trustee's member.

Roads in townships do indeed fall under the authority of the Road Commission. I recall when thereRead More was a suggestion for a traffic signal at Delta Kelly School at the top of the hill off Adams it was turned down by the Commission. The hill was cut down a bit, but to me that intersection continues to be dangerous when trying to exit the school or the adjacent cross streets. The township may want to pursue initiatives with the road commission to help with what I think are big safety issues. Often township's that help fund a portion of road work, signals, etc., get put closer to the top of the list when state monies become available. Oakland Township may be in a financial position to do that. Worth a try, I think.

Too bad Chairman Carter isn't the Supervisor. He doesn't have an agenda and is most respectful. HeRead More knows how to lead, not dictate. He runs awesome meetings. Supervisor Gonser should take notes on Carter's leadership style. Carter is confident but not arrogant. Gonser craves control and does not respect other perspectives. Just my take after watching meetings.
