Where’s the fence?
You have heard the old Wendy’s commercial, “Where’s the beef?” Well, I am wondering, “Where’s the fence?”
My neighborhood has been enveloped by the Elizabethtown Sports Park. Therefore, I assumed the park would be providing a privacy fence for the homes which lie adjacent to the ball fields. I was shocked and appalled this week to see they had planted tall, skinny shrubs as their idea of privacy and security (not to mention a noise barrier) between my back yard and the park.
Furthermore, the walking trail is within ten feet of my back yard. Thus, thousands of visitors to the park, with unknown backgrounds, will have direct access to my children playing in the back yard.
For the first time in seven years, I no longer feel safe in my own back yard. Therefore, I look to the Elizabethtown Tourism and Convention Bureau to rectify this situation; because Elizabethtown tourism does not include my family’s back yard.
At the very least, the Tourism Bureau should provide a privacy fence for the families who are paying for this park with their tax dollars.
