Juneau Parks and Recreation is hosting a kickoff meeting for the Fish Creek Master Plan at 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 19, in the downtown library conference room. This is a good opportunity to find out what the city has planned for Fish Creek as well as to share ideas about what we would, or would not, like to see happen. Given that Fish Creek is a favorite place for fishermen, bird-watchers, duck hunters, berry pickers, and people who like a pretty place to stroll, this meeting will interest most of the community.
One of the complaints I've heard about many local projects is that "the public wasn't adequately informed." If the lessons of Duck Creek, Jordan Creek, and local development projects have taught us anything, it is that doing the job right the first time is simpler than trying to fix it later. Let's use this opportunity to do it right the first time at Fish Creek.
