“Recently I attended a meeting at Slayton House convened by the Coalition for Columbia's Downtown. A presentation was made by Cy Paumier, one of the early Columbia partners, a longtime resident and an internationally renowned urban park planner. Among other thoughts, Cy presented his ideas for developing Symphony Woods as, if you will, Columbia's "central park."
If you haven't already seen his presentation, I hope you have the opportunity to do so soon. His proposal is very impressive, not too difficult to achieve and would maintain and enhance the park-like environment we all treasure in Symphony Woods.
I want to put my support behind this proposal and look forward to working with Del. Liz Bobo, our other colleagues in the Howard County delegation and all of you in providing whatever help I can to make Cy's proposal a reality.
This would be an invaluable addition to the quality of life not only for Columbia but for all of Howard County.
Sen. Edward J. Kasemeyer"
If there ever was a case of political back slapping this is surely one. What is it, I wonder, about Cy Paumiers plan for Symphony Woods that Senator Ed likes so much compared to the one put forth by General Growth Properties?
Has Cy Paumier even finished his plan yet?
Maybe he should stay in Arbutus where they actually may care about his opinion.
