The council of the Town of Bay Harbor Islands has just authorized the building of a fourth Tot Lot at a cost of $670,000. This has been done while there are no facilities at all provided for the teens, adults or seniors. In fact, one of the council members stated "he would have approved the initial $900,000 plan for the park." This does not include the $3 million cost for the acquisition of the land.
The creation of a Community Center that could serve all of the community could have used $670,000 or $900,000. Since our community is a diverse one, it should be a requirement that all of our citizens and residents be served.
