Re: “Greensward Plan Heads to Council

The way this timid solution just kicks the can further down the road is going to do nothing but further exacerbate tensions among the Greensward crowd, myself included. For the next 2 1/2 years, we will watch the zoo keep pushing the boundaries, moving barricades at night, and slowly encroaching on the greensward until they are parking across from the dog play area. The only acceptable solution, which is what Mayor Jim Strickland proposed, was an immediate stop to parking on the greensward. This is one condition that is not subject to negotiation in the public's mind, and we will not be happy or give up about this until that condition is added to the agreement.

It's a shame Berlin Boyd cannot understand the how OP benefits ALL Memphians on a daily basis and not just between 3 & 5 pm on Tuesdays.

Re: “Greensward Plan Heads to Council

"The resolution does not include the final boundary marks to note what Overton Park entity controls what slice of land there. The March 1 resolution passed by the council did exactly that (and gave two-thirds of the Greensward to the zoo). Since then, surveyors have completed their work to give legal definitions to those loose boundaries set forth in that resolution."

Time bomb that goes off when zoo parks (or attempts to park) all over the G'ward for next 3 years.

Re: “Greensward Plan Heads to Council

Berlin Boyd fails to understand that the $150,000 doallars the City gives OPC is multiplied tenfold by private grants and contributions.

“Not everyone’s happy... which means we probably did pretty good job.”

"... to be sued by an organization that we put in place…that right there is the straw that broke my back, not the camel."

Douches gonna douche, I guess. They can't help it.

Re: “Consensus Reached on Plan to End Greensward Parking

Wait, I thought it was childish to say that the State wasn't going to go along with the Zoo's plan to break the law? I guess they want to see natural areas stay natural. Whodathunkit?

Re: “Consensus Reached on Plan to End Greensward Parking

Well, it's 'over', like it's 'over' after the boss finally told you and your partner that you had to both cooperate in your latest project. You both know the general outline of what he's talking about, but there are endless possibilities for dragging of feet and passive-aggressive avoidance of the inevitable. Don't count on certain people to stop their antisocial behaviors, until we see what they actually DO. I personally don't see the relationship between the Zoo and the OPC fundamentally changing, until Brady is gone. He's got too much of a habit of provocative behavior, which I don't believe he has the desire or capacity to change.

Once the State said no to trams through the forest they are willing to "compromise."

Re: “State Won't Allow Zoo Trams in Old Forest

What is necessary to provide reassurance that the terms of this agreement will not be violated is the removal of Brady from any position of leadership or trust at the Memphis Zoo. It is his obstinance which has prolonged this problem. The current parking issues are in very large part the creation of the Zoo leaders. They failed to adopt reasonable forward-looking plans to address the logistics associated with visitors attracted to new and replacement exhibits at the Zoo. An eternal watchful eye must be forever focused on the Brady faction at the Zoo. The best solution is to remove Brady entirely.

Re: “Consensus Reached on Plan to End Greensward Parking

Thankfully this is over now. Hallelujah, we never have to hear about it again. We can now turn our attention to the truly important issues this time of year: the baseball pennant races, football and a couple months behind that, the NBA.

Re: “State Won't Allow Zoo Trams in Old Forest

Another vote of no-confidence for the Zoo CEO and his enablers on the board. Time for some resignations.
