Interesting Paragraph

Rouge Park users celebrate

The Freep covered Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick's decision not to sell 115 acres of parkland in Rouge Park in their Friday issue. The most interesting portion of the entire article, in my opinion, came at the very end.
(Mayoral spokeman Matt) Allen said the city is about to announce a new recreation master plan and intends to sell some parks and other surplus land for housing. The city wants to put recreation closer to the biggest population centers in the city, he said. Parks that are sold would be replaced by green space elsewhere.
We will have to watch the release of this master plan very carefully. It could be that I'm just paranoid, but there's this little voice in the back of my head that keeps saying that they're about to try selling the Ryan playground in Warrendale.

Only time will tell, though.
