I suspect that even the most vocal of anti-tax crusaders might agree that the referendum money spent to renovate Mills Park was worth a small increase in their propery taxes. The park is a large one, but has no ball fields, playground equipment or picnic tables. It is a place where anyone can go who needs a little peace and quiet. It is place where you can think-- left alone with your thoughts. Every town needs a place of solitude and quiet repose. Cemeteries provide such a apace, but they can be kind of depressing. Besides Oak Park has no cemeteries.

Mills Park's renovation was a part of the master plan renovation of almost all the parks paid for by a fairly recent referendum. For my money, this investment in the community was well worth it. The community should check on this investment.
