The City of Fremont Ponders Sale of Parklands
At a meeting of the Fremont City Council on March 16, 2004, a summary of "Potential City Properties for Sale" was presented. Seventeen properties were designated "Tier One" signifying possible present or future residential, commercial or municipal value.
The list includes current "Parkland Inventory" that may be sold or swapped for other parklands. TCV interviewed former Fremont Maintenance and Recreation Supervisor, Jack Rogers and asked for comments from "Save Our Parklands" committee members, Pauline McIver and Bob Tavares about the new group. "Save Our Parklands" was created to inform the public of a threat to future parklands and open space. At an initial meeting, held Wednesday, April 21st, approximately 75 people attended and appeared to be in agreement that grassroots action was necessary.
