Park space important

In a recent editorial, The Union reproached Supervisor Conklin for proposing 200 acres of the Loma Rica annexation for a park instead of affordable housing for Nevada County’s “working families.” While part of the park area is currently proposed for large lot residences, none of it is planned for affordable housing. Grass Valley is in the process of tripling the size of the city with 7,000 acres of annexation. Including 200 acres of park among those 7,000 is also important for “working families.” It’s called good planning.
