The plan for a future Rosehill Nature Preserve, the city's largest greenspace purchase in decades, sparked some neighborhood strife at last night's design forum. Dozens of people piped up with concerns, reports The Tribune, based on the general impression that the city is moving toward a park space rather than a natural one. Yes it should be freely accessible, said many in attendance, but boating, biking, and fishing should be restricted. Ald. Patrick O'Conner more-or-less disagreed. The removal of up to 25% of the site's trees upset many, as well, but it was noted that few of the targeted trees are healthy. [Trib, previously]
