Parks caught lying about Highland Park again

From the Daily News:

In 2007, the agency issued 410 hours of permits for Highland Park's existing ballfields. That jumped to 753 hours last year, but included a two-week carnival that accounted for 195 hours.

Parks spokeswoman Patricia Bertuccio said the permit lists don't account for countless pickup games and practices on those fields that don't require prior approval from the agency.

The Parks Department's website displays this:

So, they are going to tear down a ready-made nature preserve to build ballfields for practices that are not supposed to be held on ballfields because there are too many people who want to play games on them, yet there was a documented lack of people playing games on the fields for the past few years. In Adrian's world, this makes sense.

You know they talk about crappy and all the anonymous postings.

There is someone who wants to get their hands on this and make some money and its all done behind closed doors.

Think people. You find that person and this effort will fall apart.

it's amazing over here in juniper park the queens falcons are told they can't practice unless they have the proper permits. So what's the real deal, clearly states find an open space. the falcons have been at this park for close to twenty years and the commissioner of qns parks, is telling them they can't practice there.. really don't get this at all.
