    If the current administration wants to continue its weakening of Forest Preserve classifications, changing this one from Wild Forest to Intensive Use should be done differently than razing a useful structure to make yet another picnic area. Does APA/DEC have no imagination? Why not keep the structure, and adapt the immediate compound area ONLY for use by veterans with disabilities, including PTSD? Keep it isolated and quiet and provide caregivers when appropriate. I would assume federal and private funds could be obtained for this purpose. It at least should be considered. Do we really need another trash-littered picnic area? Why not something a little more unique?
