Letter: Visitor comments on Fuji Park

I am not a resident of Nevada but my family has been living in the Carson City/Carson Valley area since 1960. I visit the Carson City area several times a year and have seen the tremendous growth from a small town to a large city with large city problems.

I love the West and my trips to your area and have always envied the beauty of your environment. I have kept up with your area issues via the Internet by reading the online articles of the Nevada Appeal and Record Courier. I have been following the direction of the Fuji Park situation over the past several weeks, and from a visitor’s point of view, it seems completely ridiculous that there is even an issue. To move a park and reroute a stream for commercial purposes is extremely greedy of your city fathers and the latest 4-H debacle really takes the cake.

I am a resident of Williamson County, Tenn., south of Nashville. We are the fastest growing county in Tennessee and used to be one of the most beautiful counties in the state before they rerouted a spring and built a monster shopping mall which now has become a city unto itself. Now the citizens are in a panic to stop the sprawl before it’s too late.

Maybe the city fathers of Carson City need to be focusing their energy on the traffic issues that face the citizens and visitors to the area before destroying a piece of history that can’t be replaced.


Franklin, Tenn.
