We will still need to have some public meetings and heated discussions on the planning of this open space, visitor friendly, all season park. However, these are discussions and arguments we will welcome because whatever happens, we will be in it together on the same side. This may all sound like a fantasy but only we, working together, can make it a reality. I believe it will be so successful, we will need more than one pig’s back.
