Tom got it right. The reason Tennova wants to build there - that it's the last big piece of undeveloped (and unspoiled) land in W. Knox - is the best reason to preserve it. Like he says, when it's gone, it's gone forever. No one tears down hospitals (or shopping malls, office complexes, etc) to convert them into green space. It's time to get over the assumption that "it's going to be developed anyway". It will be only if City Council and the Mayor allow it to be. It could be bought and preserved as a natural habitat park, with an equine center, which it used to be (the old barn is still there) or an environmental education center. There are lots of possibilities and lots of money out there. We need something green in the midst of the pavement that has taken over the West end. Give it a chance. Deny the rezoning Tennova wants.
