Be pa­tient with how new park bond money is used

The Mercury News Weekend - - OPINION -

Charles Shoe­maker (Let­ters, Sept. 14) is wrong about the 2006 parks bond money mis­man­age­ment. It takes time to build new parks. Don’t con­flate money for ex­ist­ing parks with money for new parks. We need new money to keep up and de­velop ex­ist­ing parks, such as Coast Dairies in Santa Cruz, where beaches are in­ac­ces­si­ble be­cause needed stairs are not built. My wife re­fuses to go with me to my fa­vorite beach there be­cause the path is too steep and danger­ous. I can’t say I blame her. — Robert Wahler, San Jose
