The Lakewood Parks and Recreation Advisory Board scheduled a neighborhood forum for Tuesday, March 24, in Fort Steilacoom Park to revisit a bad idea: building a performing venue in the park for future extravaganzas (TNT, 5-25).
This white elephant is being promoted by the Lakewood Rotary, which wants to build and maintain a complex with some grant but, in the end, mostly public money to promote venues that profit Lakewood Rotary.
Anyway, the meeting was rescheduled to a new location with almost no notice. About 50 people, all of whom oppose the project, showed up at the original park location.
What's going on? Why the maneuvering? Why weren't public meeting rules followed by public servants? Why won't this bad idea go away?
