Re: “OPC: 'No Doubt' On Reaching $1 Million Goal by Sunday

Chuck Brady and the zoo should be ashamed of their lack of support for green space. Many major cities in the US, including New York, are tearing out pavement and replacing it with parks - that increases civic pride and is a great investment. The zoo is doing the exact opposite.

Re: “Council Gives Zoo Greensward Control

The 100 year-old Greensward and Overton were modeled by George Kessler after Central Park. The Greensward is the heart of the park, like the Great Lawn in Central Park. To cover it with cars is a blow to civic pride, and moves Memphis backwards. Improving Memphis's biggest problems will take a lot more than protecting our parks, but respect for our most cherished assets and beautification of public green spaces are key components to moving a city forward and out of a blight-ridden state. Parking cars in the middle of our finest public park is a perfect metaphor for the lack of vision our city's leaders have for the future. It is a lazy, short-sighted, and selfish move that should not have been made. I thought we were better than that.

Re: “Memphis’ Central Park

If you polled the public, Drew, it would not be a minority. Even if it were, what kind of a democracy would we be if we ignored the concerns of the minority? Have some sympathy for others. This is my neighborhood, and I pay taxes. My voice deserves to be heard.

It's easy to park in the neighborhood, such as in from of my house on Overton Park Avenue, rather than the greensward. The zoo is being lazy, greedy, and a bad neighbor.

Re: “Full Interview: Q&A with Zoo President Chuck Brady

On free Tuesdays, the smart folks part on neighborhood streets, because it's free. It's a three minute walk to the zoo gates if you park on Kenilworth or Overton Park Avenue, where I live. No one ever does that, except on free Tuesdays (and Shell concerts). Why? Because they don't know about the option and are told to park on the grass. I'd much rather have litter from zoo patrons in front of my house than tire ruts on the greensward (there is never much litter). The zoo is just being lazy and greedy - throwing the park under the bus, instead of being honest, transparent, and neighborly. They are literally the bad guys in a movie. With no insight into how they are being perceived. Shame.

Re: “Zoo Blues

ArlingtonPop - there are cars competing with people on the most beautiful days of the year. This should not happen if we want Memphis to be a progressive city. If you want a hillbilly parking lot though, this is your thing. LOOK AT THIS DAMAGE.

I live on Overton Park Avenue and there is plenty of parking on my street. Please, park in front of my house, and not in our PARK. I fund the zoo and the park with my taxes. I should have a god**mn say in the matter. I am sick of this abuse by the zoo. This is not a new situation.
