Southern Humboldt Community Park
"Why is it, that in this last River Parkways Grant application (2008/2009) the Park Board told the State Resources Agency in 3 different sections of the application and cover letter (signed by Kathryn Lobato); "The property is now completely clear of debt!" and "We also successfully raised another $1 million which gave us the opportunity to satisfy our note holders. We are very pleased to announce that our property planned for the South Fork Eel River Parkway is now debt-free" and "Since our application in 2007, we have raised an additional $1 million and the property is now debt-free". The Park Board tells this community one thing, the County another and the State Agencies something completely different, why is that? What is meant by "another $1 million" and "additional $1 million". What happened to the first $1 million? "Clear of debt"? "Now debt free"? Now in last weeks paper the Park Board submitted yet another (#4) "GPA Application Update". It states they are very close to "90% paid for"? Close must mean a quarter million dollars, because that is how "Close" they are to burning the Community Parks privately held mortgage and small operational loans. People in this community need to demand and read all Grant applications this Park Board has submitted. If the Park Board does truly represent this Community, this community needs to know, not to just to be on a "need to know basis"! The Park Boards mission and stated 501c3 purpose is to own and operate one or more Parks, period! People in this community did not donate their hard earned money to pay down high interest private loans or "professional services and fees" for the last 10 years. "
