County awards WeHo $285,000 park grant

West Hollywood will receive $285,000 from the L.A. County Regional Park and Open Space District, part of $9 million generated by a parcel tax voters OK’d in 2016.

The county considers WeHo a city with very high park space needs. The city will be able to use the funds on park projects.

“Park equity is our core objective, and the Technical Assistance Program helps even the playing field for park projects in our high and very high need communities,” said County Supervisor Holly Mitchell.

The photo for this article shows a little girl with a baseball bat. In West Hollywood we have no baseball fields for children to play baseball. We need more park space for children.

The current city leaders have no interest in the “wholeness of life” that many experienced during their childhood. Their primary interest is their wounded quasi adult selves seeking attention.

Once we enjoyed a very popular softball field at West Hollywood Park. It was even the site of the annual Playboy Playmate v. West Hollywood Pickup Team. (Keep your eye on the ball, please!) I recall chiding John Heilman at Council meeting when he announced that the field would be consumed by the new park design.

John Heilman wanted a memorial. Now he has the Weho Library and Council Chamber with multiple construction, design and sound issues plus the West Hollywood Park makeover with an astronomical over budget figure and no space for a simple baseball field. A Memorial to Municipal Disaster.

I hope the City doesn’t waste this money on West Hollywood Park. Too much has been spent on that monstrosity already.

When I was a child, my mother always said,

If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all.
