Those funds should go to a truly worthy carbon offset project but this is not one of them. Bedwell Bayfront Park could use some benches and planned planting of native plants that belong at shoreline. The park does not need 1,000 trees that could break the delicate cap over the landfill and could seriously imperil the plants, birds and animals of the park and wildlife refuge that thrive in an almost treeless environment.
This grant is a waste of taxpayers' money. The city should invest in those benches instead.
