From The Future


Alien friends of mine have provided me with both a photo and news from the future. Pawlowski announces in early 2010 that he has sold Bicentennial Park to Lanta, and the Park Maintenance Facility (on Linden Street across from stadium) to Muhlenberg College. molovinsky on allentown writes post after post on his blog condemning the sale of these important city assets. Pawlowski dismisses Molovinsky's criticism as sour grapes about not being hired as Joyce Marin's replacement for Community Development Director. Molovinsky applied for the position after learning that her blog, Allentown Good News, was cited as her accomplishment. The photo shown, taken in August of 2010, is the completed walking path in Cedar Creek Park, across the creek from the Rose Garden.

This is very sad to read but we suspect all too true. Those baseball park family members didn't have a chance once a city hall leader got involved.

Perhaps not in the next few years, but we predict eventually Muhlenberg will have the entire street theirs. They will tear down the remaining Linden St. homes for more college structures.

Do you recall the US Supreme Court case that has set precedent across the country? Homeowners vs. New London, Ct city hall? Families were forced to relocate after generations, the company that was to build on the land not only decided against doing so after all the houses were demolished, they actually pulled out of the town altogether!

Unconfirmed sources report the reason Molovinsky was turned down for the Community Development Director position is that the real Mayor was afraid of feeling intimidated and inadequate if the Shadow Mayor got that particular job.

Walking path looks great!

Them bulldozers do nice work.

my application was flawed by their criterion. i was familiar with both allentown and real estate.

MM,is this part of the "Trails Process" that the Parks Director Greg Weitzel talks about and that Andrew Kliener,REMEMBER, is such a big fan of? Do you know?

anon 8:05, actually the cedar park current plan does show a separate trail across the bottom (southern) end of the park, next to hamilton st and honochick dr,, which is part of the trail network.
