Fred Rogers was a swimmer. He swam most days.

Why not float (PUN) the idea of a Fred Rogers family aquatics facility in Hazelwood? That facility could be the cornerstone to a new "neighborhood." It could also include the new home to PCTV 21 -- and have a media center.

To run with this idea would be a worthy challenge if the Director of Citiparks obtained initial meetings with the folks of Water Technologies Inc, as well as the four foundations that own the 177 acre site in Hazelwood (Mellon, McCune, Heinz and Benedium) as well as RIDC (nonprofit developers) and UDA (Urban Design Associates) principal architech, Don Carter.
