Reader's view: Brush blocks views from Skyline Parkway

Skyline Parkway is not a tourist attraction anymore. Brush and trees block most views, with the exception of the sky, even at outlook areas. Duluth spent money on signs along Skyline but not on clearing brush or trees for views.

This reminds me of Duluth giving a ticket to a Skyline property owner for clearing brush across the street, not on his property, to help others’ views. He didn’t do this for his view, only to help others. Maybe Duluth could start a volunteer program to do this, but they would lose control, and environmentalists would complain.
