City is responsible in open space purchase and management

In his article of April 20 ("Setting a bad example"), Tim Myers posits a definition of a "geography" partisan and divides them into good, neutral and bad.

He gives an example for good and neutral. For the bad, he implies that the whole Santa Clarita City Council fits this definition but doesn’t name names.

He further presents four things that he is sure the City Council would endorse.

In particular, he says, "they see no problem in endorsing purchase of land, in the name of open space, at inflated prices that developers cannot economically turn into homes or industrial properties."

One has to assume that Mr. Myers is talking about Santa Clarita’s open space district. In that case his statements have no basis in any kind of fact.

Can you give an example? Can you find better candidates for open space?

If Mr. Myers was capable of any kind of business analysis, he would see that Santa Clarita has done a remarkably fine job enhancing our city with excellent properties at reasonable prices.

Even Frank Ferry, widely not considered to be a tree-hugger, has an article underneath that of Mr. Myers encouraging folks to get out and walk our open-space trails.

I believe the whole council strongly supports our well-managed open-space acquisition efforts. Shame on you, Mr. Myers, for recycling groundless tea party-type rumors.
