Update: Now they have put up a screen so that you no longer can see the equipment and other things in the fenced-off area. That is good, but still questions remain.
Ugh. I know that the Board asked for a fence around the snow removal equipment that is stored in the King Farm Community Center's parking lot. But I don't think THIS is what anyone had in mind. Last year they put up a smaller fence, I believe it was temporary and not see-through. One of those fences that block the sight of what is behind it - like they use for construction at apartment building around town, etc.
Not only is it see through, but the posts are in the ground. In the cement and asphalt. It is either a permanent fence or will require repairs when it is pulled up. Plus, it is an expanded fence from what it was last year. Last year it was just around the sand pile and the containers. Ensuring that the neighborhood children couldn't climb on those things and potentially hurt themselves.
Now it has been expanded. And they have parked more equipment behind it. Pickup trucks, bulldozers (or whatever they are), etc.
Taking up parking spaces and disrupting the parents who drop off children for the bus stop and leaving less space for community events.
Some people have complained that the Board sometimes can micro-manage - and there is a bit of truth to that. I have always thought that we should keep out of day-to-day decisions.
I am reconsidering that position after seeing this fence. It is absolutely not what we (or at least I) envisioned for our community standards.
