A public presentation took place recently for the proposed linear park, the Underline, to run along US 1. While it is doubtless that the park is a good thing, the cost is unsettling.
Not surprisingly, public money is being sought to make this project happen. What’s missing from this project is transparency.
When any group seeks money from the public, thorough, complete and ongoing financial information should be posted on the organization’s website. Someone is reviewing the finances for these organizations and the public should have access to the same information.
