To the Editor:
I was delighted to see that the Planning and Zoning board voted to retain the services of Steve Johnson as open space and natural resource agent. I have had the pleasure of working with Steve and his enthusiasm for, and knowledge of, the parks and open acres of city-owned land impressed me enormously. If these parcels were left unsupervised, the trails would soon be choked with invasive plants rendering them unusable for city residents. Our precious shoreline is also an asset that needs close attention to keep it healthy.
