‘Other View’ not our view

    As president of the Hulen Meadows Water and Homeowners Association, I need to set the record straight. Contrary to Bob Jonas guest column title “Hulen residents vote for river park” in Other Views on July 2, there was no formal vote taken on the proposed river park at our annual meeting or any other meeting. Mayor Nina Jonas was invited to speak at our annual meeting and she gave a brief presentation on the latest design changes of the river park. She and members of her staff, as well as the Wood River Land Trust and the Parks Department, answered homeowners questions.
    The Hulen Meadows board has, with the advice of legal counsel, maintained that they will not publicaly take a stand on the issue of the river park as long as it is bundled with Ketchum’s plan to install a new well at Sun Peak. The Hulen Meadows board is still working with the city to develop an agreement that protects our ability to pump water at our current levels if Ketchum installs a well in the same aquifer and diminishes our capacity to do so.
    For Mr. Jonas to imply that the result of the meeting was broad support for the river park was misleading. They represent his views and not the majority of residents. In fact, Hulen residents have both mixed and passionate opinions of the proposed park.
