I hear many campers are moving out. Is this because of a court decision or are they tired of the battle?

It will be a shame if they do. If they close, looks like the best bet will be somewhere out by Astabula. Hope that Lake City and Girard can survive without losing too many businesses with the revenue we all spent.

What are the plans for the park? Is it just going to sit empty? The campers kept the place safe It is my understanding Lake City Police do not have jurisdition. Man if I was a teenager or a criminal could I think of a thing or to to do there. Oh well, I am sure Girard township elected officials have listened to their constituants and know what they are doing.

It will be a park for the people in the local community like it was meant to be. Not a trailer park for Pittsburgh people.

I guess it is true you never appreciate what you have in your own backyard. I just don't see myself enjoying the park. I hope the rest of the community appreciates it and it turns into the "place to be" and does not sit empty and becomes a place for trouble

Does anyone know if they intend to keep the parks caretaker. That might keep the park safe and in good shape If we want to keep it a local park and keep the "bad" Pittsburgh people out we have just made our own world smaller. Based on that philosophy we should not go to Pittsburgh for any reason. We have an airport, mall and amusement park. We will always be small because we think small

I dont think any of this would of happened if they would of kept the place a little nicer.....it really does look like a shanty town. There are other camp grounds around and they dont look like that. Camp Eriez and Uncle Johns are just two that really are kept up nice. So, I believe that it was probably the caretakers responsibility to make sure the place was kept up and it hasn't been. Its a shame because it really had the potential to the nicest and it turned out to be the worst and that shouldn't of happened. So whos to blame????

There will be no caretaker. I see no way for them to pay for him. At about 150 lots in the park at $1000 per lot, this is an immediate $160K loss.Add that to lost revenue, taxes, etc and we are looking at a $350K loss. They will not be able to maintain the park. Bunch of weeds in a few years. Not sure if anyone notices, but everwhere else on earth, people are doing there darndest to lure vacationers in because it is so fruitfull to do so. Just not in Girard.
Who will cut the ballfields, who will maintain the whole place? More taxs on you all might get it done.

An empty park will bring its own set of problems When do the campers have to be out? When can we say goodbye to Walt? Last, Who will be responsible for policing the park?

Question: Are the residents of Girard etc. willing to make up for the loss of income in additional taxes when the park closes?

I am a camper at Lake Erie Comunity Park, my husband and I enjoy coming up to camp every summer.
We do agree that Walt has not taken very good care of things at the park. I understand that this week their were signs posted that we could no longer camp after May 31, 2010. I hope this is not true.
I know that the campers do contribute a lot of revenue to all the communities around the park.
What is the council planning on doing with the land if they ask us to leave? There are alot of nice people that camp at the park, we would really miss coming up each year. I think most of the campers do keep their lot clean and take care of there campers.
Please reconsider your decision and work with the campers and the people in the community to make this a park for everyone.

For those of you who hate Pittsburgh from the blogs above -- what will you do when UPMC takes over Hamot? UPMC closed Braddock, Southside, Aliquippa Hospitals etc. You will need every cent you can muster... I, for one, hired an unemployed young Erie man, with a wife and 2 small children, to help me with my lot landscaping...
these are horrid economic times. Instead of hate, vengeance and jealously, this is really the time for all of us to support each other any way we can. If the park closes, so will local businesses (any of you or yours working at nearby restaurants?, water parks?).
In these times we need to look just a little into the future before deciding based only on the present.

Most of the places in the campground dont even look like someone has been there in years, so I think most people that really enjoy coming to Erie will either try to find a place in Uncle Johns campground, Pine Lane, Folley End, Virginia Beach or Camp Eriez just to name a few.

Those that really want to stay will find a place to go.
