To the editor,

In my opinion, something smells about our Grand Forks' city leaders insistence to develop Arbor Park.

Why develop this beautiful piece of downtown when less than 30 yards away there is an apparently useless, large piece of empty property on the corner of Fourth and DeMers? Additionally, if development is so important, there is another empty, large lot at the corner of University and Fifth Street.

No, something is not quite right. I smell a rat. My father, now deceased, was a long-time councilman for Grand Forks, and he told me more than one story where someone with influence tried to enrich or favor his or herself at the expense of the citizens of Grand Forks. I strongly suspect that is what is going on here.

For the time being, I think Arbor Park should be left alone.
