Keep Austin's Enchanted Forest Open!

RECEIVED Tue., July 22, 2008

Dear Editor,
    Austin Enchanted Forest is a beautiful piece of commercially zoned land that its owner has generously opened to offer as a venue for some of Austin's most creative folks to share their talents. It has been home to the Halloween haunted trail, chili cook-offs, and live music performances.
    Apparently, a very small group of people have decided that they do not like the Enchanted Forest as a venue and have adopted a policy of complaining every time the gates open.
    Apparently, the city has chosen to shut down the forest as an event venue in spite of the owner's good-faith efforts to comply with city ordinances. The closing or restriction of this very special venue will be a loss both culturally and economically to the Austin community.
    I am writing to voice my concern over this matter and to request that everything possible be done to keep the Austin Enchanted Forest open and allow it to function as an event venue.
    Thank you for your time.
Michelle Iaquinta
