An open stream?

There have been some thoughtful discussions between Kathleen McElroy and Chris Schmidt, our Alder. In the discussions, the question of leaving an "open stream" is mentioned.

"Gutterized" open stream just west of the Westside Post Office

But, "there's many a slip twixt the fork and the lip." Just leaving the stream "open" isn't a victory for people who hope for natural streams.

Our open stream will need some natural curves, variations, and a way for vegtation to grow over it. Let's be creative! There's bedrock there--can that be part of the stream's bottom in places?
