The public park is a place for hundreds of citizens a day to walk, jog, meditate, pray, breathe fresh air and view the city. Selling all or part of the mountain to a private investor would give up the freedom the park has allowed so many, and risk the demolition of the cross and/or the erection of other religious symbols. The park must remain public land, whatever the consequence.
Pease do not sell the land surrounding the cross, or give Mt. Rubidoux away. We do not want the landscape of our city decided by the highest bidder. We do not want our freedom of the mountain restricted by fences and signs. We want the mountain to remain a public space, a park for all to enjoy. Please do the right thing, and do not sell all or part of Mt. Rubidoux.
