Parks department choices

I am writing regarding the Spokane Parks Department. They recently destroyed perfectly healthy trees in Dutch Jake’s Park in the West Central area. If there was a problem with the trees, why weren’t their limbs just trimmed? Shrubs also could have been trimmed.

Our neighborhoods are forced to accept certain projects that turn into garbage collectors and remove needed parking in the process. Perhaps the department heads should go back to college to study ecology instead of destruction.

My vote will no longer support the Parks Department. Their decisions are not in the best interest of our neighborhoods.
