Protection of Powder Mills Park
This site is dedicated to protecting the natural
woodlands and beauty of Powder Mills Park.
Let’s save a place for wildlife! The
National Park service provides a model mission for parks: “promote
and regulate the use of the parks...which purpose is to conserve
the scenery and the natural and historic objects and the wild life
therein and to provide for the enjoyment of the same in such manner… as
will leave them unimpaired for the enjoyment of future generations." The
quiet enjoyment of the park, for everyone, should be the guiding
light for “progress”.
Monroe County will
likely approve $85,000 for a Master Plan for Powder Mills Park
in May. The park is a precious sanctuary--let’s
save a place for wildlife! There is a strong lobby seeking to allow
off-road bicyclists and the County seems to be very ready to OK
the development of a dog park within Powder Mills - but have “no
idea” where they would put it. Let’s find a better
place for the dog park and enforce the PMP rules that we currently
have: No dogs off leash, no bikes on trails and take your
garbage home with you. If you agree, please complete the letter
below to our representatives asking them to exclude these activities
in our beautiful park.
