York County has a superb "collection" of parks. The county should be proud of them, and the residents should avail themselves of them more.

In these depressed economic times, parks are a waste of valuable financial resources, especially Highpoint.

The land should be sold, and the money from the proceeds of the sale returned to the county coffers. that would prevent, at least for some time or at least lower, the inevitable tax increase that is coming.

How come no one had to reimburse the county for the inept way the Highpoint deal was handled. I mean, they had a price of $2 million and now it will cost the county (taxpayers) over $20 million with interest?

York county parks are a treasure and a true necessity, of all the tax money that is squandered by our local government maintaining and expanding our local parks is money well spent for the most part. The fiasco of Highpoint and the necessity to install Taj Mahal style toilets in any park are of course just ridiculous and we should hold those involved in these decisions responsible and vote them out.
