Environmental advocates are speaking out against the proposed River Trail Apartments. The 143-unit complex is slated to be built on what is currently the north end of Riverfront Park.
Area resident Jo Lakota visits the site on a regular basis. She says preserving the parklands is essential for the community’s health.
“And to the health of the river," Lakota said. "You’re going to put down cement and cut down all these trees and have more flooding, which we spent what a half a million three quarters of a million dollars downtown. I mean, come on we’re not all fools.”
