South Gateway Park would enhance community

park I am a former Hollywood Hill Association board member.
    We in the Woodinville area, with our tremendous growth and abundant resources, will have many choices to make in the coming years. We need to make these decisions with careful thought and foresight--and also with accurate, unbiased information from our representatives.
    I believe the proposal for the South Gateway Park would enhance our community and offer our families more resources to enjoy our lives.
    I find it exclusionary and small-minded to huddle around this open space in the valley and make threats about how its use might endanger our lifestyle.
    Certainly we can and should influence our leaders in the decisions we make about this valley land--but I would hope it would be with accurate information and consideration for our many needs.
