There is a rumor that the brilliant town fathers of Elkin have sold one of the community parks.

elkin is no different than any other town or state in the country. when chatham went belly up and the jobs were lost that was the beginning of the end of elkin. elkin is a broke bankrupt town till thousands of new jobs are created . elkin is to small to grow much and because of that its the reason chatham park got sold , anything to make a buck. why do you think states are selling marijuana , to rake in the money thats why. now you know if elkin can make a buck thats all they care about.

This from the Wednesday Tribune:

The board approved an indemnity agreement with Gerald Davis II, recent purchaser of Chatham Park, working toward the town continuing to use the park. Cornelison said progress is being made on a lease agreement with Davis for the park, which should be presented to the board at its June meeting.

Who would have ever thought Elkin would be such a great place for a trailer park.

30 ball teams use the property yet the town didn’t value them enough to purchase the property???

There is a sign. Looks like it’s not just a rumor.

There is a Freddie Davis 336-648-1741 on the Private Property sign.

This is a sad time for the kids of the Elkin area.

Perhaps, if they’d have sold Town Hall, less damage would have been done.

Wonder if Freddie would trade the field for Town Hall ??

What could have possessed their minds?

What consideration did they give to the soccer teams whose season is now in jeopardy?

Whose friend benefited from the sale?

This is Bovine Excrement of the foulest kind.
