          So what was the purpose of this Town Hall? I went, learned very little about my community. Few questions asked even fewer answered. Should have stayed home!

The community club? Are these the same people who make recommendations for Murphys Community Park?
If so, I'd like to say something. The park is slowly looking worse every month.
* Dead tree limbs over benches and the kids play ground.
*Wrong size sprinklers on the weeds that's called a lawn. It very easy to tell after the sprinklers stop to see large dry areas that never received water. Any decent gardener could spot this.
* Park benches that are warped, peeling paint, rotten boards and seats that wobble.
(at least prime the wood that's replaced, because the ones you replaced, then paint months and months later are already in bad shape and have warped)
* Broken Electrical boxes near the wishing well that a toddler may one day insert a finger or object..
* Sink holes caused by flooding that have never been filled, and this in turn is weakening the rock wall keeping the bank in place
* The bridge supports on both ends are cracked, broken and ready to fall over. The tree suckers growing through the cement supports and foundation as well.
* The same bridge with screws coming up through the boards to trip a person or tear a barefoot open.
* One of the footbridges leading into the playground is rotten and the wood flooring needs to be replaced.
* Blackberry vines growing everywhere, soon the park will be taken over by these.
* Gardeners who will not pick up the litter, even if that litter is on top of the garbage
containers, and they blow the litter into Murphys creek (which by the way is
a $25,000 fine if someone takes a picture and sends it to one of the many different agencies these days)


If the Murphys Community Club is indeed responsible for the park maybe someone should grab a notebook and take a walk around the park. Better yet, have someone else do this, someone that knows something, anything about taking care of a park or property open to the public. This park has been deteriorating for sometime now.
One of the problems with having a large committee saying "we" need to do this, "we" need to do that, is there are too many Chiefs and not enough Indians (not very PC of me). Maybe the finger pointers saying "we" need to commit some of their time in the park actually doing some type of work? You know, instead of having a BBQ or a lunch in the park and calling that volunteering work.

    Perhaps you who has a long list of necessary repairs could step up and help either with physical labor or money. I agree volunteers are on the wane unfortunately. Please call 728-1948 to volunteer or you may inquire about becoming a board member.

    So for years you’ve taken notice of these issues and yet what have you done to resolve them? Have you donated your time or efforts? Attended any meetings? Since apparently you were aware of these issues and done nothing, the parks condition is as much your fault as anyone else’s. I’ve seen new signage, new facilities, a dedicated groundskeeper, new lights, bocce courts, and multiple live events. That takes time, energy and money. So take your list and figure out how you can stop whining and be a committed adult in the community and help the park yourself.

    Well, you sure said something! Complain, complain, whine, whine. So pitiful, nothing positive! Sounds like you spend a lot of time there to have such a list of complaints! Put on some gloves and start improving the area you obviously spend so much time in... or stay home and take in the ah of your well kept house.

      Why do bloggers always accentuate the NEGATIVE, eliminate the positive and excel the derogative?

      When someone gets injured by a falling limb in the playground you'll have no excuse. You can tell the lawyer, "we didn't know" but now you do.
      Thank you

Well. That is a pretty accurate list. I can not comment on the irrigation sprinklers because of rain and I missed the gardeners but the rest on the list is right before yours eyes if one opens them.
As for joining the board or going to the meetings that has always been a waste of time has something changed these days?

      Did you attend the same town hall meeting I did? Questions and Answers...roads, construction of highway 4 by Big Trees, dog park, Indian Casino possibility, cannabis. I'm sorry you felt it a waste of time, obviously some didn't.

        Sorry, But you stating topics - there were very few if any answers!
        We have become so sidelined with chatter over substance its very concerning. It was very clear that the presenters have a very shallow understanding of the purpose of RIM fees, our county budget process, "Were Broke Folks", The roll of a leadership position, moving the county forward in a positive manner, and last but not least the decision making process expected from leadership on subjects like commercial cannabis. While leadership is admittedly still digesting the data the residents have long understood the hard decisions that need to be made by our Supervisor to deal with this problem - sorry but this forum was useless display or ignorance.

I put an hour of my time in the park, come home and write a list and people say I don't volunteer my time.
I'm now in my early 70's, work about 20 hours a week. My job is property management for businesses and apartment complexes. Sorry to inconvenience the people who sit at their computer and criticize others.
If you pay a gardening service to maintain your park, they should be doing the job required and doing the job correctly. The correct sprinklers, picking up garbage, cutting pulling blackberry shoots, trimming small limbs from pathways so people do not have to duck under them. So you want volunteers to do this work and still pay a full payment to the gardening service not doing their job, is throwing money away. My job is to make sure that money is being spent wisely for the work being paid, the grounds are safe and pleasing, all equipment and utilities are safe and in working order and recommendations made on what I find.
Just pointing out some facts for you.
Your welcome.
