GW Natural Playscape Project in the Kingston Times this week.

The first public hearing for the Community Development Block Grant that took place in February is in this week’s Kingston Times.

“The playground was described by present Ann Loeding as “an outdoor classroom” constructed of natural materials that would enable students to experience a closer connection with nature and be accessible to the surrounding community.  Planner Jennifer Schwartz Berky, whose child attends the school, said the playground would not only help children combat “nature deficit disorder,” which she said was a common affliction suffered by American children described in a best-selling book, but also reduce storm-water runoff, since the existing asphalt would be replaced by porous materials.

“I’m the last person to speak in favor of these grants,” noted parent Sean Griffin, who lives with his wife and four children in Uptown and also cited children’s nature deficit disorder as a concern. “The problem with these grants is that they redistribute money from our high taxes” for projects with green and other catchy tag lines that aren’t really needed, he said, nothing his neighborhood is already home to five nonprofit commercial kitchens. Griffin said it was the amazing education received by two of his kids, who attend the school’s Montessori program, at GW compelled his to speak out in support of the new playground. With a $15,000 price tag, Griffin also noted the project was of the lowest cost of the proposals.”
