Sounds like Housing Commissioner Carolyn Clarke doesn't understand the need to preserve Sharon Park as open space. She apparently doesn't feel that preserving park space for children and for adults who enjoy nature is important. She doesn't understand that Sharon Park is too far from public transportation and from downtown shopping to be suitable for seniors or for individuals without their own transportation. She doesn't understand the traffic gridlock that adding more than 1000 individuals to the Sharon Park area would create. It makes me wonder what qualifications she presented for her present position. Certainly she is not qualified to be a City Council member.
