Playing Chicken with Parks

May 28th, 2010 · 3 Comments · News

We have big “Parks” and little “parks”. In case you haven’t heard, New York State is having a bit of a fiscal issue. While the rest of our “system” languishes in a limbo of budget-extenders, Department of Environmental Conservation and Parks, Recreation, and Historic Preservation fought their own battle and “won” a small victory.

Every organization with a stake in state budget negotiations is doing the same with mixed results. You could say that I’m one of those “mixed results”. And like most things in life, there are two sides of the coin.

Update: Mountain Visions recognizes this game.
