This little eyesore of a park has sat vacant all these years with no one in the community taking any steps to preserve it as a park or anything else. Now that there is a use for said property, everybody wants to save it.
If my memory serves me correctly, Lincoln Park was cleaned up top to bottom several years ago by the employees of Erlanger. I only remember it being used once before it was completely ruined by some folks in the neighborhood. That alone is enough to flatten the place and build a road over it.
Which is more important, a little community of about 50 people or the entire northern population of Chattanooga?
