Not a bad idea

Wow, I agree with Grand Rapids Pundit on this issue. That is a first. The subject: an "adopt a bathroom" suggestion for keeping Aberdeen Park's facilities open for Creston tennis players as put to GR's city fathers and subsequently turned down.

I'm sure GR's reasons for not wanting to consider this particular form of alternate funding are all good, all practical, blah blah blah. Not to mention uninventive, unimaginative, and totally without vision.

Grand Rapids Public anything (you name it: schools, parks, pools, transit) can use all the help it can get. And of course the problems are much bigger than a few closed bathrooms in a park. Still, if you adopt no-brainer solutions like this one for for some of these smaller issues, you've then got more time and more energy for taking on the really big things. Why not give it a chance?
