As a riverfront property owner, I support the Sanger Access Park for increased legal access to the Kings River. People come to the river. With safe, clean, legal access, they don’t trespass and they have a place to park and a bathroom. I feel safer living near a park, as I do, than near a vacant lot because happy recreational users deflect vandals and mischief-makers.
As president of the Kings River Conservancy, I know the challenges of keeping parks maintained, weeds down, bathrooms cleaned, and graffiti painted over. At a recent planning commission hearing, a neighbor spelled our fiscal challenges.
We welcome all people who care about the Kings River and well-maintained parks to support the KRC in the form of donations or volunteer clean-up activities. Please send contributions to www.kingsriverconservancy.org. We use 100% of donations earmarked for maintenance for maintenance, nothing else.
