The Eagle Rock off-leash dog area would be a designated area where well-behaved canine citizens, and their people, can exercise and have fun in a clean, safe environment.
We want to create a beautiful, well-maintained space open to all dog lovers and friends who will be willing to uphold the park’s rules and restrictions. This park will be designed to satisfy the needs of dog-owners and non-dog owners alike. We aim for this park to be a community project, supported in large part by volunteer dog advocates and maintained in partnership with Eagle Rock Neighborhood Council and the 14th Council District.
- Such a park would allow families with dogs to spend more quality time with their pets, and create a greater sense of community as residents will more likely interact with one another. Let’s get to know our neighbors!
- This park would encourage residents to spend additional time in our community and frequent our businesses (a number of which are already pet-focused or pet-friendly).
-Having such a park located in the currently unused portion of Yosemite Recreation Center behind the swimming pool (for example) would promote better use of this land area, deterring tagging, loitering and crime due to a higher volume of foot-traffic and better lighting.
- Such a park would reduce angst between dog owners, non-owners, police and park authorities regarding dog access to other city parks.
- There is not a current public dog park in our immediate area to accommodate safe, off-leash dog activities.
- Socializing dogs is very beneficial to the community, since it makes them less skittish and can mitigate aggressive behavior when meeting other dogs and people.
- Regular exercise is great for any dog's longevity and weight control, and the overall effect of regular exercise makes most dogs calmer and better behaved.
Please help us create a dedicated space that allows our residents to exercise their canine family members and themselves as well as benefit the community as a whole!
If you would like to be involved in our efforts, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org. We can update you on our next steps and see how you may be able to help out.
The purpose of this petition is to demonstrate the community support for the completion of basketball courts for our youth. Our town has a tremendous history for basketball and previously had 3 basketball courts available.
Currently two are run down and not maintained and a third one has a foundation but no apparatus to play. We need to consider the true benefits of court completion as well as the future of our youth.
Children, teenagers, and young adults alike would all utilize this community facility. It's importance would provide a gathering of friends, an atmosphere of exercise, as well as deferring our youth from hitting the streets and seeking trouble from boredom. Your support is crucial to see to it that the newest court located at the East end of town (13th street) be completed to include cemented backboards/nets, weather proof painted basketball lines, cemented benches, water fountain, as well as appropriate safety fencing.
We are asking that your signature provide Midland Council with the community interest and backing of this project. Thank you for your support.
The mayor's proposed budget would include $700,000 in one-time "bridge funding" to allow for the bureau to reduce its strength through attrition, and not by laying off the bureau's most recent, more diverse hires.
The mounted patrol unit now consists of six full-time officers, one sergeant, two stable attendants and one horse trainer and costs about $1.2 million. The city budget office recommended it be eliminated "in light of current fiscal constraints,'' the office analysis said.
Canada Bay Council has lodged a Development application (DA89/2013) to build a Council Office and Site Office on the park which has been designated as the “Community Precinct” for the Rhodes Community (30 Shoreline Drive Rhodes. This is the new park on the water near the corner of Shoreline Drive and Gauthorpe St).
This site was subject to a previous application (DA 630/2008 Development Application for Open Space & Public Domain) for the construction of Community facilities including Tennis Courts, Children’s Playground and paved areas. Council later had this DA amended to allow for construction of the current park without the listed facilities.
The Council is now applying to use this land for a Council Building rather than the outdoor Community facilities originally planned for the site.
The Council has further suggested that in the future they intend to use this site for the construction of permanent Council offices, rental halls and commercial properties such as Cafes.
The Rhodes Peninsula when completed is expected to accommodate a population of many thousands of residents and will be one of the most densely populated areas of Sydney outside of the CBD.
One item that most residents of the Rhodes Peninsula lack and need is a back yard. As council has continued to approve building of increasing density, it must also compensate the Community with open space. The Community Precinct has already become the suburb's “back yard” and this is what the Community wants more than anything for this area.
The area is currently used on a daily basis for sports activities, ball games, children playing, personal training, dog walking, social group meeting areas, tai chi, flying kites, etc. To use this wonderful waterfront location for the construction of Council buildings, further impacting on density levels, would result in a disservice to the Community and would be at odds with the purpose of the site, which should be, and currently is, for the benefit of the Community.
We call on the Council to work with the Community to develop the site for its original purpose of outdoor Community facilities, NOT buildings.
We need to gather support from our community so that we can apply for a Community broadcasting licence on FM in Cape Town.
ICASA needs to know that there's a need for Mutha FM in the Cape Town community and we need your help in order for us to show that we have the support of our community.
Glassbar Island Park is an historic recreation area located at the confluence of the Middle fork and Coast fork of the Willamette River.
Since the 1950’s, visitors have come to the area to enjoy the diverse wildlife, open space, and other recreational opportunities.
On January 15th, 2013 a proposal was submitted to the Lane county Board of Commissioners that would bar public foot access to the park via publicly owned property indefinitely.
We are urging the Lane County Board of Commissioners and all relevant governing bodies to protect current and continuous public access to Glassbar Island Park.

Burnley bouldering wall is an amazing asset for climbers and non climbers alike by providing a safe place to gather and train for free in a public setting.
There are many climbers in Melbourne especially in the Brunswick area and we believe its time to get a facility here as well. This petition will sent to relevant people in Moreland council to get a wall built in Brunswick.
Help raise awareness of plastic and how it effects our environment!
Los Angeles County has been the first county in California to ban plastic bags, so why can't San Diego or specifically La Jolla?
We live in such a BEAUTIFUL beach community and it's sad to see our local markets using plastic bags!
Help the oceans and ban plastic bags!

For years the riverstone community has been put on the back burner with an overpass and we are happy that the government is moving forward to elevate the problems associated in riverstone, however we do not feel that the overpass on garfield road is the suitable option as it will destroy business , history and the local community the community would like the government to move forward on the Loftus st option.
The decision to close the road and pedestrian access to Llay Health Centre from the southern side of the village was taken without full community consultation.
Concerns raised by the community council about access to the health centre were not passed on to the planning authority and therefore the decision was passed without a full understanding of the facts.
Rob and Samantha Outridge from Maleny Supa IGA lodged a development application with Sunshine Coast Regional Council on 28/06/2012. http://bit.ly/Qu5V9P

Liverpool's branch of the Roads and Maritime Services does not provide its customers with a public toilet facility. Elderly customers and children who have to wait in queues for up to and exceeding 45 minutes risk either losing their place in the queue whilst seeking an alternative premise or put their health, and well being in jeopardy.
In the Liverpool Champion's first active campaign, we are calling for community support to bring back the loo so our people can stay healthy, clean and dry.
The Doreen Community Market used to be run by Rotary, but unfortunately it ended in 2011 due to Rotary no longer providing support. The Country Women's Association - Doreen Branch wish to put back into the community by running the market on the last Sunday of the month (excluding December).
The Country Women's Association is a non for profit organisation, so each market a charity or local group will be chosen to receive the proceeds and therefore money will be put back into the community.
It is about bringing the community together and strengthening community spirit whilst helping out charities and local businesses and groups. Please sign the petition to help save the market and show your support for your local community and for local community spirit.
195-197 City Road, Cardiff was once the iconic Gaiety cinema and later a Spin Bowling Alley. The building had been left empty for several years (we believe since 2006) and the company who owns it have fallen into debt.
Throughout the years that this building was empty, it has been abused by drug addicts and people stealing fixtures from the inside of the building. Earlier this year, a group of individuals have entered the building and are trying to set it up as a free social centre for the use of the community. Because of seeing lots of enthusiastic and supportive members of the community, we think this is a valid project.
We want to set up various skillshare sessions in the space, including several workshops in arts and crafts, music, performance art, language, yoga, climbing, freerunning etc. We would also like to us the space to kickstart several art projects and hold exhibition, all of which will be completely free.
Bonne Mares Limited have recently won a courtcase for a standard possession order, meaning they can send baliffs and remove us from the building whenever they choose. We need to act now if we want to save the space, which will otherwise be left to rot away (judging from the lack of interest from both buyers and owners).
We would ideally like to gain some sort of legal possession, preferably we would like to be able to look after the building until it is sold. We do not want any money but are more than willing to fix it up and work on it. We think this is both in the interest of the owner and the local community.
If you want to find out more about the project please visit http://welcometogremlinalley.wordpress.com/ or http://www.facebook.com/GremlinAlleyCardiff or send us an email email@example.com
If you would like to see our project come into fruition, please show support by signing this petition. We appreciate any kind of help we can get.
The 4017 community had success in objecting to a McDonald's store, as proposed for the corner of Board and Kift Streets in Deagon, in 2011. Brisbane City Council did not support the application and McDonalds withdrew their proposal.
Within twelve months of the aforementioned community success, it is rumoured that McDonalds have purchased 69 Rainbow Street, and plan for a McDonald's store in the heart of Sandgate. The site is within 100 metres of the local school, within walking distance of independently owned burger shops, and community housing flats. The nearest McDonald's store to Sandgate is only seven minutes drive to Bracken Ridge.
This community has clearly said no to the McDonalds fast food corporation. Sign this petition and help our community keep McDonalds out of Sandgate.
In ye´olden days, there used to be a Blur Fan Club, which recieved a monthly magazine (Blurb) and on occasion, an exclusive Fan Club Single (i.e. Death Of A Party (Demo), I Love Her (Demo), etc.).
This is a petition to start a modern-day equivalent of this fan club.
It is known that there is more unreleased material that the Blur community would love to be able to get the chance to hear.
Help join the petition and give us a fighting chance to join an experience like no other.
THE PETITION IS CLOSED AND HAS BEEN SUBMITTED TO SNOHOMISH COUNTY. PLEASE CONTACT SNOCO COUNCIL FOR STATUS OF PETITION. COUNCIL MEMBER STEPHANIE WRIGHT AT 425-388-3494
Dunhill Terrace is a new development with about 139 units. The community sits North of 164th St SW along Manor Way and has seen a lot of growth, especially within the last year, and with that an increase in automobile and pedestrian traffic. Currently, pedestrians are forced to walk in the travel lanes of Manor Way to avoid the ditches and vegetation that come to the edge of the roadway. (Video of road at end of preamble). Manor Way residents are also concerned for the safety of the elementary school children that catch the school bus at the corner of 156th and Manor Way.
The Swamp Creek Park and Ride is a just a few blocks from Dunhill Terrace (even closer for those who live closer to 164th St SW). Because of the safety concerns, many of us who commute and utilize Swamp Creek Park and Ride are forced to drive this very short distance and not walk. Many residents also would like to walk to the nearby Fred Meyer and other retail establishments near the corner of 164th St SW and Manor Way.
Recently, it was announced there is the possibility of having fees imposed by Sound Transit for parking in the Park and Rides. This may force commuters to choose between walking along Manor Way, thus risking their personal safety to make it to work or incurring an extra expense to maintain safety and contributing to the parking congestion problem by driving their personal vehicles the short distance to the Swamp Creek Park and Ride.
Here are a few reasons why installing a sidewalk along Manor Way can improve our community:
• Safety for Pedestrians “Annually, around 4,500 pedestrians are killed in traffic crashes with motor vehicles in the United States. Pedestrians killed while ‘walking along the roadway’ account for almost 8 percent of these deaths”
• Increase Housing Values by improving Walkability Score. “Multiple independent studies have demonstrated that above-average walkability correlates to increased housing values”
• Less cars parked at local Park and Ride
• Other benefits include: Economic, Health, Environmental, Reduced Crime Risk

The ACT government has been trying to develop this land for over the last ten years. Every time a proposal has been put forwards, the local community has rallied to keep the land the way it is, in a largely undeveloped state.
The South Tuggeranong community DOES NOT want this land developed - rather, we would like to see it remain in it natural state as a piece of bush land that all the community can enjoy for outdoor recreations such as horse riding, bush walking, etc.
See Survey Results Supporting The Preservation of the Land.
Please sign our petition to stop the development of our community's bush land!
A huge metalic box, electrical transformer, has been erected on the historical plantation in the centre of the Lancefield township.
Whilst Powercor have the right to erect such transformers without planning approval and had received approval on technical grounds from the council, we still find their choice of location shows no commonsense and is particularly insensitive to the community of Lancefield and visitors to our beautiful main street.
The Mayor has said he will approach council to support us in getting Powercor to relocate the transformer if we can get 1000 signatures.
Delbrook Pottery Studio has been operating in the North Shore for over 30years. Over this time it has provided the much needed space for North Vancouverites to create and express themselves using clay in a community focused and inexpensive way.
The studio offers drop-in and structured classes every day of the week, including studio memberships. Programs run for families, parent and child (3-5yrs), kids (6-12yrs), adults and seniors.
Within the next few years plans are underway to create a new Recreation Centre to consolidate William Griffin and Delbrook Rec Centers. At the moment there is great concern that the new building plans do not include space for a pottery studio.
When Delbrook Rec Centre is demolished, we will lose one of only two pottery studios run by the North Vancouver Rec Commission. Parkgate studio will be unable to accommodate the resulting volume and demand once this occurs.
At a time when the Government has recognized that Art is as important as fitness to the community by implementing a tax credit for children’s art programs, should we not in North Vancouver also recognize this, and preserve and expand already run clay programs for generations to come?
Proposed plans to put offices on the skatepark site remain.
The council have said that an alternative location for the skatepark would have to be provided.
BUT there is no specific alternative for relocating the park.
The draft plans are not specific enough to guarantee the future of the skatepark and we ask that you join us in petitioning the planning department of Kensington and Chelsea council further.
!Do not allow the loss of this amazing community resource!
Thank you for your support, please spread the word!
We humans are closer to extinction that we all realize or want to acknowledge, we each have an obligation to preserve our species not destroy it, we owe it to ourselves and the generations to follow.
We may look different, sound different, and have different beliefs from one another but it does not negate the fact that we are all the same species and citizens of this world.
It is imperative that we work quickly and together despite any differences to preserve humanity.
I am asking all leaders and individuals to make a commitment to work towards uniting the people of this world.

27. Save Fulford
The former Penistone Grammar School buildings Fulford, Weirfield and the stables and the site they are situated on are been sold for possible residential development, which would lead to the demolition of these buildings.
These buildings are an integral part of Penistone's social history and must be retained for future generations. Other alternatives for use and conversion need to be fully exhausted before this can be allowed to happen.

The Lauren Edgerton Foundation, Inc. was founded to honor the memory of Lauren Elizabeth Edgerton, and will represent the essence of Lauren in an honorable and pure manner.
Lauren wanted to find a way for pre-teens and teens to have a place where they could go to meet with friends, and just "chill" as she would say. A safe place, a place their could call their own, Lauren's Place.
With the help of volunteers, fundraisers, donations and grants, Lauren’s Place will provide charitable assistance to the community by providing a center for pre-teens and teens to go when they need a break. If their home environment becomes too challenging and they need a “cooling off” spot, Lauren’s Place will be their “go to” place.
Lauren’s Place will offer services such as the Study, which will provide a quiet area for members to do homework or projects. It will be equipped with computers, printers, a copier, and stationery supplies, the Library will provide a book exchange program, the Closet will provide a clothes exchange program, the Gallery will display members' original art, plus much more.
Local Sonoma County events have been reduce greatly in the recent years and we would like to help establish a yearly festival that will give to the community and everyone whom participates in the event.
Our thoughts/desire concerning this event include showcasing local talent in order to inspire collaboration and teamwork of up and coming production teams to give back to the music community and the people involved. In additional to help all those involved we would like to take a percentage of all proceeds obtained from the event and distribute it into the local economy such as the schools and social assistance programs.
We want to better our community and combining the local talent will help to bring about additional opportunities for everyone involved in the event. Whether it be new connections, new associates, additional tourism and external revenue can be brought into our local economy. This will help to assist each member involved as well as every in the local area.
