Our local newly renovated Sunland City Park has been destroyed by adult soccer players, most of who live and work out of the area of Sunland-Tujunga, California.
Each Sunday the park is unusable by local families because adult soccer games are taking place and there is no room for a family to play on the grassy lawns. Additionally, the lawns which were newly planted in 2005 have been destroyed and show expansive bare patches.
After the first season of adult soccer play, local families protested the constant actions that eliminated family time at the park on Sundays. Other community members asked if part of the fees for the soccer teams would be used to repair and replant the lawns. Nothing was changed, nor settled and the lawns areas remained bare. As the second soccer season began, the lawns grew worse and the invastion of outsiders to our park continued.
Families were not able to use the park as previously promised by local officials. Local community members continue to be unhappy with the City of Los Angeles allowing - out of the area - soccer teams to trample and destory our newly redesigned family park and take away precious family time at the park.
The children should not be let out of school into an unattended alley way which flows into a very busy parking lot.
The alley way will pose problems in the winter months when snow and ice are in season and children can slip and fall injuring themselves.
The children not only have the potential of being abducted in an unsupervised alley way but also are being put into harms way having to walk through an occupied and busy parking lot.
1.5 million people die each year worldwide from smoking. If you sign this petition to take cigarettes out of stores think how many lifes you would be saving.
1 in 5 people that die in the USA die because of smoking. That equals one person every 10 seconds. Every day in the US 3,000 teens become newly addicted to smoking.
Let's make that stop.
