I cannot understand why Mayor Hawes and his council could not get behind this idea.
Perhaps it is prudent to revisit the observatory as a part of the bigger picture.
The Stage was a good start, but the rest of the structure needs work.
The most important step is to convince mayor and councillors to commit to a date to have a 12,000 square foot cement facility built.
This building will be symbolic and the consequences of willfully destroying it go well beyond broken concrete and splintered wood.
