We need more places for the Detroit Darkies to sling their wares. Trails sound like an excellent meeting place for heroin sales

I think it's a waste of money. There are already plenty of places to walk and exercise. If the city had enough extra money to do this, why not invest it in something important like education? Or downtown where the businesses are so maybe more people will come to ashland. A hiking trial just sounds like something that will be used for illegal activity like drugs and prostitution, and it will disturb the wildlife that already has very limited living space because of the city. We already have a park you can walk around if you want to exercise.
Hey retard! Did you miss the part about the Army Corps covering the cost? You sound like the type of lazy scum that doesn't pay into the system but leaches from it. I have hiked thousands of miles over my life on different trails and I have never witnessed one being used for prostitution or drug deals. Criminals are typically too lazy to go to the trouble of hiking anywhere.

I'm a retard for disagreeing with you? And what makes me sound like someone who leaches off the system? To be honest with you, I own a house right above the location where these trails are suppose to be and I don't want a bunch of people walking around my property. So go ahead and be a negative ass hole, but I guarantee I have "paid into the system" more than you have.

We could argue about who has "paid into the system" more than the other but does that entitle someone to dictate what happens on adjoining property? There could be much worse things that the land could be used for. It's not like a hiking trail is the kind of thing that brings down property values. If you don't own that land you should be thankful that a crummy housing complex that holds a bunch of welfare junkies doesn't get built. If having someone trespass on your little patch of land is such a concern then build a fence. Hell, if you have "paid into the system" at the amount you act like you have then maybe you can convince the city commissioners to build a fence for you to keep all the miscreants out. Not only do you sound like a retard but also an irritating old prude!

The paramount has been done for a really insanely long time! LOL What scaffolding? This is kind of a silly.

It'd be nice if the mayor would get the water flowing instead of focusing on hiking trails.

I don't see the need for city/tenderfoot trails in the park.that is not hiking, that is walking. We already have the 6 feet wide path that goes around it. If you want to hike, go out in the woods. Hiking trails in Central Park would be a waste of time. It is like camping. people say they are camping and take their microwaves, tvs etc. Whatever happened to camping and roughing it? Use the money to benefit the most people you can, not the few that would bother to even walk on it. How about investing in something that would bring jobs to the area?

I'm not sure if it's the mayor's fault considering the water shortages and pipe line breaks and contamination in WV. There are so many water catastrophies happening everywhere that there is just a shortage right now. I'd say they probably have to get more water before they can give it out. lol But I do hope things will get better soon. Verry odd.

The scaffolding comment probably refers to the support beams. They are on the outside of the theater addition so the inside could be one big open space, with no cross beams in the way.

Im not sure what your going on about..

Whats being discussed has nothing to do with Central park.

Its about renovating and improving about 45 - 60 acres worth of unuseable property around the edge of Ashland and constructing improved paths in them to allow people to get and go for a long walk in the woods.
