In response to the news article in the June 30 CVN regarding selling the borough-owned property at Third Avenue and Main Street, I urge the borough to keep the .75-acre lot and consider developing the property as a downtown park as funds become available, for future generations to enjoy. As a retired real estate broker and former chairman of a parks and recreation committee, I subscribe to the vision and quotes by Will Rogers and Mark Twain, who were as attributed to saying, “Land, they ain’t making it anymore.”
