    The Department of Public Works… Isn’t that run by Col. Burch? I’m surprised that people who live outside of the area actually have a say this time.

Of course, we’ll need to flatten a section of it to create parking and install a building or a kiosk, but hey, here’s the anonymous survey of people who want that sort of thing.
