Is City Lake Park for sale or not?

November 21, 2000

To the Editor:

A rumor has been widely circulating to the effect that the city plans to sell the Baldwin City Lake Park to raise funds for the planned recreation/business park. City Administrator Larry Paine's newspaper articles on funding that park have not included that, instead discussing a bond issue.

Can the city fathers either deny or confirm that such a sale is a) under consideration, b) not on the table, or c) already being arranged?

Further, if the sale is contemplated or underway, will the city sell to a developer or plat and sell lots itself?

I am asking for general information only. I have no financial interest in either selling or keeping the Lake Park.
