JA’s pitted against each other re: land usage next to the JANM (known as “First Street North”).Big meeting in Little Tokyo last Thursday.
The issue: theatre/park/childrens museum vs. gymnasium.
…and on the other side: parents, kids and local merchants.
Seems like David vs. Goliath…
Tough call not knowing all the facts (…& politics).
To the extent a gym can promote children’s attendance to the JANM museum & 100th/442 monument, it seems like a good idea.
Interestingly, a project manager for the Childrens Museum, who attended last Thursday’s meeting to argue against the gym, did a 180 at the meeting, surprising everyone.
“I may lose my job over this,” he said, “but I think it’s a great plan (i.e. the gym).”
