The green space should have been preserved. 

What would seem to me to be the super-obvious choice would be to condemn the long-hated junkyard on Second Street, and expand Carver Park, and build this basketball stadium where the junkyard is.  I don't get it.  Why isn't this obvious.

Yes, the junkyard is paying taxes, but it's reducing the tax revenue of the properties across the street and throughout the neighborhood. 

1. Getting rid of the junkyard will increase tax revenues throughout the neighborhood, and
2. it's been long known that nice parks increase local tax revenues as well.
