In your article on the new bike trail in Vanderveen, Ms. Basi did not come to my house, nor did the Greenspace Protection Coalition give the entire Vanderveen community a chance to weigh in on the matter, 32 signatures hardly reflects the views of the entire subdivision. You wrote in your article: “Basi said the 32 signatures reflect the view of the whole neighborhood.” This is not the case. I am excited about the possibility of having the bike trail, and I feel it will be an asset to Vanderveen. I understand the coalition’s position on this issue, but it only reflects the views of a small number of households who don’t want to lose the private park behind their homes. Really the bike trail would be no different than living on a golf course, but if you bought a property with a private backyard, and then a golf course came in, yes, there would be an issue. I understand this is city land meant to be enjoyed by all, not just a few.
