Alderman Rosa DiTucci is concerned with the number of structures popping up along Horn Pond. There are more than 200 benches at Horn Pond, she said, and quipped you can jump from bench to bench around the park.
DiTucci requested a plan that looked at the short-term and long-term use and care of Horn Pond and restricted memorials, plaques, benches and structures at the pond.
Last week, she ultimately agreed to a 90-day ban of new structures, which was backed by the City Council, reported the Daily Times Chronicle.
The council also sent a motion to create the Horn Pond Committee to the council’s Liaison Committee for further review. The Horn Pond Committee will be chaired by the Ward 1 Alderman and include the city engineer, an alderman at large, a Conservation Commission member, a Recreation Commission member and a Ward 1 resident, reported the Daily Times Chronicle.
