The story on KGAN channel 2: (ILT makes a brief appearance )
KGAN CBS 2 :: Top Stories - Proposed Land Swap Not Sitting Well at a Popular Marion Park

The petition:
Petition Save the Legion Park Disc Golf Course and Thomas Park Hill.

"The City of Marion Parks and Recreation Department has plans to give land at the top of the park's wooded hill to real estate developers interested in building condominiums. This is
being called a "land swap" and is an effort on the part of the Marion
Parks and Recreation Department to rectify its own mistake in encroaching on
private property when it did not abide to the original outlay of the new bike
trail as planned in conjunction with surveyors."

What the general public may not be aware of is the fact that the land the city gained was basically inaccessible! It was in a flood plain by a creek, surrounded by a housing development, Menards and a high ridge. Just b/c they gained otherwise crappy land so a multipurpose limestone trail could cut through from point A to point B; it shouldn't mean developers should get PRIME upland real-estate!

Don't do it for mountain biking.
Don't do it for disc golfing.
Don't do it for sledding.
Don't do it for preserving a separation b/w the park and buildings.
Don't do it for the wildlife.
Don't do it for preserving what little nature there is within the city limits.

DO IT FOR ALL THE ABOVE!

Please take 2 seconds to sign the petition!
Petition Save the Legion Park Disc Golf Course and Thomas Park Hill.

Key word is "GIVE" to the developer, little bit of corruption going on.
