How to Build A Carmel Park? First Thing You Need to Do Is Get Rid of the Trees!

Well, those great minds are at it again up in Carmel. A friend of mine, Ken, who lives in the area saw the City bulldozing a heavily wooded lot of off of Hazel Dell Parkway and joked that they were tearing down trees to build a park. Sure enough that is exactly what they were doing in their construction of Founders Park. Once they had those unsightly trees out of the way, they paved the area and planted grass.

The City of Carmel reports on their own website that, according to a study by the Indiana Department of Transportation, less than 10% of Hamilton County remain as woodlands and "very few original woodland areas survive in Carmel." Gee, I wonder why?
