It is very sad to see approximately 80% of the meadow chopped up , the same meadow that was fought so hard for a few years ago, that offered the promise through natural succession of maturing butterfly habitat and the progressive growth of more complex wildflower, shrub, tree and native grass colonies.

Let us hold the City to its promise that, after construction, a significant buffer between the cement of the skating trail and the adjacent, environmentally sensitive woodland, wetland and creek is established with appropriate space, plantings and berms.

I wonder how the soon-to-hibernate groundhog colony in the meadow is coping with all of this!
