Residents and speakers representing the Sierra Club, Fairview Elementary PTA and Columbia Audubon Society — which owns the 25-acre Nature Sanctuary plot adjacent to Bonnie View Park — voiced approval of the plan.

"We voted unanimously to strongly endorse the master plan for Bonnie View Park,” Howard Hinkel, president of the Audubon Society, said.

To prevent damage to the flora and fauna in the park, Hinkel and Audubon Society Board Director Bill Mees suggested the prohibition on dogs in the park and limiting bikes.

The committee voted unanimously to move on with the master plan for both parks and present it to the City Council.
