YOUR TURN: Proposed road through Shelby Farms

Posted: Updated:

(WMC-TV) - A lot of people reacted to the debate this week over whether to build a parkway through Shelby Farms Park. That's the topic for this week's "Your Turn" segment.

Some people like the planned road, some want a different route and some want no road at all. From our Facebook page, here's the opinion of Rico Dagastino.

"I am in favor of building the road as long as the stipulations of the Shelby Farms Park Conservancy are followed. Some describe the section of Shelby Farms through which the road will be constructed as an oasis. I suggest those individuals take another look at the bean fields through which the road will pass. The current roads through the park are an abomination. The comparisons made with the plan to build I-40 through Overton Park are inappropriate. A far smaller portion of Shelby Farms will be used to build the roadway."

That's Rico Dagastino's turn. Now it's your turn. To comment on this segment or anything else, email or call 800-465-1210.
