Signs in the parks

The notices on the parks are not "condemnation" but "conversion." Conversion means that part of the park property will be "converted to another use." In this case, the minerals are converted away from from "recreational use" and are being sold from under the park. The signs clearly state that there will be no drilling units in the park. Moreover, the engineering department told me that the city has made extensive efforts to avoid drilling in the parks and has no (current) plans to drill in the parks. I was told that the drilling for the mineral extraction of the Love Circle area will be done from the other side of the lake.

Good question. These signs have a lot of people wondering.
