Perhaps linking to the wrong story? This one was about a drain for Martineztown. But I'm interested in what you were meaning to say...
Michael, it's the correct story. I was pointing out that while this pond serves a purpose, the execution was myopic in that it's merely functional and lends zero in the form of a people-friendly environment. The city could have used that land to sell to developers to put in some urban housing and retail and built the pond to resemble something much, MUCH more attractive than what it really is. Form AND function need to not be mutually exclusive.
Ahhhh. Totally get your point. Was just typing without thinking and it was too early in the morning? It that a valid excuse? :)Thanks for the clarification, I'm 100% with you on this one, again, as usual.
Yeah, big wasted opportunity. Even if they'd set it up to do double duty as a park (like the one in Barelas, or by Highland High, or etc..) at least the city'd have something to show for it.
