Citizen’s Comment- Hallinan Heights Neighbor Present Proposal to Expand Hallinan Woods

Hallinan Heights neighborhood representatives presented a proposal to expand Hallinan Woods. The group launched a campaign asking the city to buy property adjacent to the public portion of Hallinan Woods because the property is currently slated for development. The Hallinan neighbors told the board that the recent development proposal would have a negative impact to the city park. The group is urging the City to step in and purchase the property and expand the park to create a Hallinan Nature Park. The nature park would encompass the entire woods. 

Joe Buck asked for direction from the board regarding Hallinan Woods. Metro suggested creating an easement around the protected land portion of the proposed property.
