The New London City Council should cancel the 2009 park permit for the Little Crow Ski Team. Free use of Near Park is from May 15 to Aug. 31. This allows use of the park from 4 p.m. to dusk.
Little Crow Ski Team occupies the park all year with their docks, ramps, cement, asphalt, sheds, etc. Chiseled in a granite monument dated 1920, it reads Neer Park is to be used for "park and recreation." It is not to be used for parking like Little Crow Ski Team does. What has Little Crow Ski Team done for or to the city of New London in return for free use of the park? They have used, abused and destroyed one of the most beautiful sites on the New London ponds.
