Re: Belmont parklet
I've been reading the letters people been writing. I am someone who enjoys the parklet. I don't enjoy the people who drive the wrong way, so I look forward to seeing the parklet expanded into a plaza (removing vehicular through put) that was shown during the public outreach.
I do agree the smoking is an issue, but seating was only provided for non-smoking and not the smokers. How about, instead of destroying the parklet or discriminating on who enjoys the parklet, we as a progressive city, finally do what’s right and restrict the sale of tobacco. Make it just as hard to buy as weed is. Society as a whole has had solid evidence for 20+ years on how badly smoking is, yet we've done nothing to restrict its use.
