Re: “Dix is saved: Witnessing the birth of a great urban park

This is not good. Theres no need for a urban park. The public is using the property all ready for whatever they want. Leaving trash and damage. Yhe recent snow left people doing donuts in the fields.and tearing up the grass. Everyone says the buildings on the property all old and umable to refurbish.well why have the state renovated almost all of the buildings on the campus already. The adams building (the one you always see on the news when they talk about the campus)used to be used for horticulture for the patients. It had no windowz and pigeon crap everywhere. It looks nice now. Completely renovated. The state remts alot of builing downtown from raleigh to house state offices where staff have to pay to park just to go to work. The state could save money by keeping the dix campus.and using it to house state offices. The public could find every agency that would be there fairly easy. Also plenty of free parking. Almost all of the buildings have been converted from hospital style to offices. Its just another way the local and state government missuses there assets.like i said the land is already being used for the public as it is. Theres no need to change anything. Also according to dorthea dix and the original lease agreement the land was given to the state for the housing anf help of the mentally ill. If they were
To not use it for that the land would be returned to the family. Im sure theres some decendant of her somewhere. I would be wanting my land back. Im an advicate for the state not wasting money where they could save. Stop renting buildings when u have buildings and land that can be utilized.why would we want a park like NY s central park where theres more crime.
