Why is this tiny park getting so much funding when other more used parks are still getting zero improvements?

Funny, I was told 13 months ago to hold on and nothing has happened. Not even the meeting Liz from GF promised.

Oh yes, all the apartments and hotels they want to add as part of the “green”way plan are just so great for the earth.

On the upside, it’s a major lifestyle improvement for those in Pine Hills near the creek. With the local environmentalists opposed to poison you’re going to get a bunch of FREE! new pets. 😉

DPU – Clack’s Corner has received -0- funding since the city was created. The neighborhood even had to continue to mow and do the maintenance themselves the first two years. I do agree that the cost now is exorbitant though for such a small park.

Yes, but that’s also true of several other parks in Brookhaven. I guess we’re all just a little jealous of y’all.

3 benches and a swing- $20,000
replacement plants and an irrigation system-$10,000
a bridge abutment monument $167,000

Telling your city they are getting a tax increase to pay for the Peachtree Creek Greenway Galleria, Mini-Mall and Hotel Conference Center- Priceless

Hey now, I’m sure the BuHi! G-Way Hotel, Galleria and Conference Center will have a really nice sushi restaurant to maintain the area’s diversity.

Good!
Easy to meet budget by changing scope, but not expectations.

What a wonderful, cozy, charming, unique addition to our Brookhaven Parks system!! I hope that the City will remember that all its parks are part of the National Wildlife Federation Habitat program, They will need to order a sign for Clack’s Corner in accordance with our other parks through http://www.nwf.org.–Tom Reilly

Tom I guess when you get old you have no concern for budgets and costs.

The NWF signs cost thirty dollars. They are in all the other parks already. BTW, when you’re seventy-two, your’re right–I’m old!!–Tom Reilly

Tom, This isn’t an addition to the parks system. It has been a park for years.

Did I miss something here?

Since when was Brookhaven indebted to and overseen by the National Wildlife Federation?

I’m not being sarcastic- particularly with the greenway coming, I’d genuinely like to know more about the alleged authority The National Wildlife Federation has over Brookhaven parks.

I wonder what the cost would have been if the lot had been landscaped in a natural manner. Like with drought resistant plants reminesent of a woodland with a couple of benches and a gravel walk. None of that rediculous and unnecessary crap it now has. This is a waste of D1’s money!

Since it’s raining money in Brookhaven, I think all my fellow equestrians should join me in demanding a BuHi! G-Way riding trail.

Cyclists are advocating for themselves, but we need to think bigger.

I for one would love to ride my horse to a cafe by the monorail.

$20,000 for 3 benches and 1 swing?? That is outrageous and ridiculously over priced. Looks like a grand time to rip off Brookhaven if you are a contractor.

Clack’s Corner is a cute little park, and I’m not knocking it. But seriously, I could go to Lowe’s right now and pick up 3 benches and a swing and pay to have them installed for waaaayyyyyy less than 20 grand. I think somebody added a zero and will be keeping the rest. Maybe that’s what they mean by pocket park – the money all goes into the contractor’s pocket.

Just wait for it.
Clacks was smallest/least expensive of all parks to complete its master plan.
Our city has provided us a taste of an example of a completed Master Plan. Now wait for it, just wait for it!
Here comes the Bond Referendum for all our parks master plan.
What else might be included in this bond referendum outside of parks?
Just wait for it.

Clacks Corner can’t be finished.
The grandstands for all future “cherry blossom festivals” hasn’t been built!
