Suppressing a vote

The people of Traverse City have been denied their right to vote on the disposition of a city park. The impending installation of a massive concrete experimental fish shorting channel and related accouterments at the Union Street Dam Park will serve as a barrier to the public's access to the Boardman River (fencing, research center).

Additionally, irreparable destruction of the river banks on both sides are planned. Why wasn’t there a vote of the public — as required in the City’s Charter (Sec 126, Sec 128)? It must be rectified.
