Streets, not yachts

Regarding the Dec. 16 article, “Arlington plan puts yacht club in peril”: As a resident of north Arlington off Brown Boulevard, I would suggest that instead of using taxpayer money to enhance a program that may not benefit everyone, the money should be used instead to repair the streets.

Brown has been deteriorating rapidly, yet there has been extensive work on Abram Street, Collins Street (twice) and Lamar Boulevard (current).

Nothing has been done to Brown since we moved here in 1994.

While it is nice to have a new lake facility with all the bells and whistles, it is nicer still to have better streets for the entire population to use.
