Fowler still fighting for Chehaw

July 19, 2004

Albany- A man who helped start Chehaw is still trying take back the park, this time he's got a team.

Jim Fowler sat down with some Albany leaders Monday night to talk about his ideas. He'll officially present a plan to city commissioners Wednesday.

Fowler says his ideas will bring in more people, but he also says he hasn't seen Chehaw's current master plan.

"I have not been privy to seeing the master plan, but let me tell you. There has been four master plans. One of them was $30 million, a zoo designer from New Orleans. Albany can't afford to pay the debt service on 30 million bucks."

Fowler wants to expand the petting zoo and interactive learning lectures and create an expedition-like ride into the zoo.
