The Point
May 22, 2011 | 10:19 AM

The bigger picture to this whole argument is can or should the city (or government) for try and be all things for all people. I'm sure that is we did as B suggested, you'd come up with a hundred answers to what people think they want or think they need. Usually those surveys tend to forget or at the very least distort the most important thing, how much is this REALLY going to cost. We tend to forget that people live in different areas for different reasons. Small towns like Lake Geneva are usually offer people a relatively safer, more quiet way of life. Cities are for those that want a more upbeat lifestyle with more things to do. The trade off with the city is that in exchange, you get more noise, people, and often more crime. The trade off in a small town is they don't offer the same options of things to do as you get in a city. Luckily for us, we live within 2 hours of just about anything you care to do. That being said, you can't have your cake and eat it too, if you want "more things to do", then perhaps moving to an area with a larger population would suit you better.

As for B, you can keep my $20 if you'll go away, that would be good use of my tax dollars....
