Subject: On the Braves Proposed Stadium in John Prince Park
I am a Lake Worth resident who is concerned about the Atlanta Braves' stadium deal. First a public park is the wrong place to build a baseball stadium. This park is green space set aside for people to visit in their leisure time to get away from the congestion of urban Palm Beach County and partake in recreation. The County is rapidly losing its little-remaining green space and desperately needs John Prince Park.
Also this green space is part of the small amount of wildlife habitat remaining in the County for birds and other species. Without that habitat, many species could parish. Finally, this deal gives the Braves this land at no (or at most) little cost to them. They should not receive such a valuable asset for free, especially considering that they have received free land in previous stadium deals only to leave that area in pursuit of another stadium elsewhere.
