Green grass, open space and COVID-19

Open space and COVID-19

Evidence the COVID 19 virus is more prevalent in high density population areas is another good reason for the City of Westminster to slow down in approving high density developments. There’s nothing like fresh air, sunshine and green lawns to keep us all healthy and happy.

My lawn is sort of pale green with brown patches due to lack of water because I can’t afford to give it all it needs. I am getting an interesting assortment of weeds coming up in the brown patches. I do resent the City watering the non-existent native grasses around the new water tanks to keep the weeds growing. I share a border with the tank property, and I suspect their weeds are blowing in. The City runs the sprinklers in the middle of the night (good) and in the middle of the day (bad) rain or shine. If that is not wasting water in our supposedly water conservation minded city, then I don’t know what is. And everyone who pays taxes in Westminster gets to pay for that water to the tune that we cannot afford to take care of our own places.

I was interested to note Bill Christopher’s article dating back to March 5, 2020, suggesting misappropriation of funds in the Open Space Fund. No wonder they don’t even move, as far as I have heard, to buy that part of the proposed Uplands development on top of the hill for all of us to enjoy.
