Find another solution to your parking problem, Halo

Halo Branded Solutions, please become a friendlier business to the city of Sterling.

Eberley Park is one of our gems in this community, and I personally don’t want any part of it sold to a private business so they can cut down 2.4 acres of trees to make way for a parking lot.

There are at least three alternative solutions to your parking dilemma:

• Coordinate with the Park District to utilize the northwest part of Gartner Park for shared additional parking, it is a short walk for your employees and you could even put a bridge over the retention water to shorten it more;

• Buy the Skoog Landscape & Design location, bring the buildings down and pave a parking lot, likewise, a very short walk for your employees;

• Consider creating a second shift for your employees, which would make your current parking space go twice as far.

Either way Halo, it is your problem. Please find a different solution that works for you, not a Sterling taxpayer solution, but a Halo branded solution.

To the Sterling Park District board members who are considering this partial sale of Eberley Park to Halo: Have you fallen off your treadmills? Please protect our community parks more diligently.

On another note, the stop signs at the intersection of Lynn Boulevard and LeFevre Road work just fine, if they are used correctly. A roundabout is just another fancy waste of taxpayer dollars.
