Letter: Make good use of Heritage Farm


Thank you to The Columbian for the article published about the 78th Street Heritage Farm (“Plans for Heritage Farm finally taking shape — and selling the property is off the table,” Feb. 1) and to the Clark County Council’s direction to do a sustainability plan that increases community access and financial sustainability of the farm.

I am in favor of the third alternative that would place the farm in the Metropolitan Parks District because it will provide long-needed funding for trails and other improvements that are in the original 2010 master plan and the updated master plan in 2020.

David Stipe, the speaker at the open house, stressed that the trail will need to be safe and secure for farm operations and all users. Our community supports more safe access to the farm and finally building a trail that will benefit us all. I believe that a trail will help protect Heritage Farm for future generations without having to continually fight plans to sell the farm property.

We need to expand what the farm can do for the health and wellness of all and honor the farm’s guiding principles.
