Dear Editor: Successful towns and counties are aware of the importance of aesthetics and the quality of life for posterity sake.
That's why you will find parks and green spaces in such communities. Hence the existence of town squares. As far as I know, Covington has one square and a couple of parks, but no protected green spaces. Trees are disappearing at an alarming rate every where.
Maybe some of that Cable Cash Cow windfall could buy up some of the properties in town that have old growth trees that are destined for destruction.
For example there is a beautiful one acre lot just south of the Depot on Ga. Highway 81 and U.S. Highway 278 that would make an ideal city-owned mini park.
