Thanks to everyone who actually is working to make strides at the Riverfront Foundation. Now, if we could just get the Plainfield Township Park District to do what it's supposed to be doing as regards the Riverfront Foundation, has in theory been on the page for doing for a long, long time, that would be great. This project is stalling out a bit because Garrett Peck and Peter Hurtado and crew at PTPD didn't just drop the ball, they kicked the ball out of play because they don't especially care about the Riverfront's development! For MONTHS the Riverfront Foundation has tried to get a response and action from the PTPD management, only to be stiffed and seeing some efforts having to be totally scrapped because PTPD stopped working on this. Get it together, PTPD and get this moving forward as it should. Too many people, like park commissioner Larry Newton, have worked too hard to make this real for it to be left to languish due to the ineptitude, ignorance, and greed of a very few!
