Petition Tag - skatepark
We are a dedicated, motivated, and cohesive group of adults and youths working together to cultivate community support and awareness to build an outdoor skatepark at Clawson City Park.
An outdoor skatepark will provide our children with a safe and accessible place that encourages fitness activity and outdoor interactions in the City of Clawson, Michigan.
Our goal is to create diverse outdoor opportunities for youth in a cental location and to foster growth and development of our community through the enhancement of local tourism.
Kids in Maryville have no safe place to skateboard. They are not allowed to use public parks or parking lots. They are treated like criminals when they are caught skateboarding by the police.
Boards have been taken and owners are not told where or when they can get boards back just that it is against the law for them to use them in the city or Maryville. They have rights and really need a safe place to skate.
Due to lack of areas for young skateboarders to express themselves through their talent of sport, they have found other places in the city of Yonkers to skate such as public spots that have disrupted citizens of the city and are now being prohibited from these certain areas.
The result of these restrictions has driven them to a life of crime such as getting involved in gangs, the use of drugs, violence, and causing mayhem. To help prevent further deterioration of our nations youth, we urge you to consider this petition in the hopes that it would provide a safe, fun, and constructive environment where kids can find another alternative to a life of crime on the streets.
It would also help to kids keep active and stay healthy as opposed to staying indoors and playing video games or being on the computer all day. It is also a known fact that keeping fit and healthy can release endorphins that make us happier. It is also a defense in helping to prevent or fight health risks such as our youth suffer from obesity and diabetes.
Even the first lady Michelle Obama has been encouraging children to stay active by telling them to play outside for at least 60 minutes a day. We thank you for taking the time out to read this petition and hope you will consider all that we are proposing.
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!
I am trying to get a good maintained skatepark in Scranton. There is no good skate parks in our community besides one for skateboards only.
I ride Bmx along with lots of other young and older kids in my area and we don't have any good skateparks in our area that we can ride and keep our selves out of trouble in.
I think if our community made a nice skate park it would lower the rate of kids getting in trouble for riding and skating in our town, which is definitely a problem especially in downtown Scranton and other areas that are fun to ride in but not safe.
We need a good park to keep our selves occupied and out of trouble. I think it would make a huge difference in our community.
Skatepark plans were removed from the Daley Bi-Centennial grounds in the first quarter of 2012. The skateboard community is greatly disappointed by this.
There are only two concrete skateparks in Chicago, 1) Wilson in Uptown and 2) 31st Street Park on Lakeshore Drive.
The increased media on the sport has created a surge of new skateboarders across Chicago. The upward trend in skateboarding has rendered the Wilson park overcrowded.
Poor construction and masonry has made the 31st street park dangerous and unskateable, particularly for young children who may just beginning to learn.
please sign my petition to take forward to wands worth council agreeing with me that wands worth has a lack of skating facility's and therefore should be built.
this will lower the number of kids without anything to do who cause trouble or stay at home and play 'X BOX or PS3' for hours on end and will provide a reletivley safe place to either skateboard, scooter, inline or BMX or meet up with friends and have FUN!!!. it should include
Since 2009 a project has been running in Stirling with the intention to rebuild the Skatepark within Kings Park, Stirling.
Over a number of years the Skatepark has suffered from frost damage and subsidence resulting in a facitlity no longer fit for the expanding and popular sports of BMX, Skateboarding, Rollerblading and Scootering.
We have therefore been campaiging and working hand in hand with Stirling Council and the Friends of Kings Park to have the skatepark rebuilt, providing a fit for purpose, modern facility which will enhance progression in the sports whilst providing a safe enviroment in which to do so.
So where are we now? We have an application for funding sitting with SportScotland, however, they want to know how much you support this project....
So please, sign this petition to show your support for the cause and lets get Stirling's youths the Skatepark they need!
Washington Pennsylvania is the only city i know that don't have a skatepark in it. We me and my friends want to go to a nice skatepark we have to drive all the way to South Park or Canonsburg or Wheeling WV.
Please sign the petition to get a skatepark started in Washington, Pa.
There are many skateboarders etc. in Rishton, we have consulted the council and are attending a meeting on the 21st, we have wanted a new skate park for a long time now.
There is plenty of spare land to build on.
The Westridge subdivision Youth are seeking to have a safe skate and bike park that resides on the current buildable land owned by the Bartlett Park District in the Westridge subdivision.
Bartlett currently has (1) skate park at the Bartlett Community Center that is located more than 6 miles from the Westridge subdivision, which is not a safe travel distance for the youth west of route 59 to easily access and safely travel to.
This petition is in support of development of the Newport Skate Park, a public skatepark in Newport, Kentucky.
Skateparks in other cities have resulted in decreased petty crimes and private property damage as well as increased social networking and health.
Additionally, skateparks enhance the unique urban appeal of communities such as Newport.
Sittingbourne now severely lacks a skate park following the closure of Unreal Skatepark, leaving us with only a few places, all very small and a long way from the main town, and the places we do use are being slowly taken from us.
In the Belmont and Highton area of Geelong there's no skate facilities for the youth. They have to travel to either Waurn Ponds or the Waterfront skate facility which is a fair distance away. Which can be hard during school holiday's for parents because they need to work.
None of the youth areas offer enough shade for people who suffer illnesses involving the sun (eg- cancer). And the area is completely visible from the road so it will be a safe place for kids to hang out and not have to worry about criminals and graffiti. All up it is a perfect spot for this facility.
The Westway Development Trust are seeking planning permission to turn the area the skatepark is situated, under the A40, into a garden centre and office space. Their reasoning behind this "The Skatepark does not serve needs of the local youths".
We are setting up this petition to encourage Kensington and Chelsea Council not to allow planning permission and save Baysixty6 Skatepark.
The skateboard and BMX riders in Vineland, NJ have no legal park of their own to practice and ride. They are often ticketed and fined by the police because the parking lots and hand built sites that they practice in are not sanctioned by the city, county, or property owners, and are not safe places to play.
There are no legal facilities available for them other than the YMCA, which charges a fee too high for many of our students to pay.
A BMX/skatepark would provide a safe, fun family place to play. It will also give our young people an escape from our city's criminal element. The city has made baseball, basketball, tennis, and soccer facilities available for the children who have those interests. The skateboarders and BMX riders deserve the same consideration.
Despite broad support by local youth ,community groups, churches ,parents and supportive councillors our 'promised' concrete facility Skatepark has been stalled!
Waltham Abbey Town Council had already agreed back in March 2008 that a professional facility was required and was made well aware of the usual funding & construction flaws of nearby projects which are not well served or fit for purpose which is why a decent proposal was sought and found recently .The Town Clerk Kathryn Richmond, and her assistant Jim Winter who worked so well with the local youth are being stalled by the 'new Tory' government in the application to the 'Playbuilder Fund' which had already been allocated to Waltham Abbey or at least agreed in principle!
Skateboarding, rollerblading ,and BMXing are part of everyday youth culture now and need to be recognised as demanding professional facilities .They need a good place to skate so that our youth are not criminalised in our towns and shopping malls...Surely every town should have A concrete pro skatepark since there are now so few youth clubs and virtual nil youth service? Waltham Abbey has been promised much but actually has considerably little...
Please honour our local youths' efforts in their recent liaison with local government.
Monroe-Woodbury needs a new skatepark.
The neighborhoods of Allston and Brighton in the city of Boston have a large population of skateboarders of all ages, with few safe and legal places to skateboard. The western corner of Ringer Park is an ideal location for a concrete skatepark.
By signing this petition you show your support for skateboarding in Allston, Boston. This interest will raise awareness with city and state officials, and increase the chances for permanent facility to be constructed in Ringer Park.
This is a petition to establish the interest in forming a permanent structure in Hilo town for children of all ages to participate in skating activities.
This includes skateboarding, rollerskating, inline skates, and etc,. This structure will consist of ramps, half pipes, flat tracks, and skating street typed structures. Lights will also be installed for later evening events and fundraising community events with performances.
Currently the usage rules for the Niles Community Skate Park prohibit the use of bicycles within the skate park. These rules effectively leave community BMX bicyclists with no venue to participate in their chosen sport; save for potential trespass and/or possible public property damage.
A preliminary conversation held with the Niles Board of Parks and Recreation yielded positive input and has lead to this formation of a public petition to address the request for a skate park rules change. Our effort is to allow rules to be changed to allow the use of bicycles within the skate park.
The City Of Chlliwack needs a safe place for bicycle riders of all sorts/skateboarders/scooter riders etc to ride safely. Just last week i witnessed my best friend get beat up by 4 gang members because he was merely at the skatepark.
A safe place provided would help keep the children who use the parks to be completely safe due to the entry cost, which would deter crime perpetrators. Consider all the possible other thing young teens could be doing besides have an normal evening doing what they love, in a safe and healthy environment.
There is a lot of graffiti, smoking of young kids and violence around this area.
We believe that constructing a permanent skateboard park at the Waller cul-de-sac is an inappropriate use of this space and that such a skateboard park would have a highly negative impact on the neighborhood.
Noise pollution would be extreme and would be magnified with any skateboard event or exhibition. Additional potential side effects include the influx of large numbers of skateboarders, graffiti, loud music, at-risk pedestrian safety, and the degradation of property, sidewalks, and streets.
Sacramento has finally started building great skateparks, but only in places that are hard to get to for younger children that want something local. In the Rosemont are there is nowhere local to skate.
This petition is to build a skateboard park in Rosemont in one of the the few parks community parks that have land that hardly anyone uses.
Many parents don't have the time and/or money to take their children to the skateparks because of work, and parents would be more comfortable with there children near home.
Taxpayers against a skate park on any township owned land.
The CSPA is an association committed to developing a public skateboarding and BMX facility in Cranford. We are currently applying for non-profit status with the State of NJ.
The CSPA was created by members of the local community who are skateboard and BMX advocates. Union County is lacking in quality skateboard and BMX facilities. Cranford in particular does not have a skate park. It is our goal to provide our youth with a safe place to practice and enjoy their sport.
If most people have problems with young skaters on their lawn or property. The answer to this problem is a nice sized skatepark in Hinesville which can be free admission for all those who promise to keep the skatepark clean and fair.
By taking turns and putting trash in the recycling bin and trash can.
Most places in Coppell are illegal to skateboard, places such as the Aquatic and Recreation Center, Public baseball and football fields, The park behind City Hall, and many more. Lots of new signs have been posted recently that say "No skateboarding."
Many skateboarders in Coppell have no where to do there thing! I believe the reason is simply because skateboarding can damage property and cause injury. Most places in Coppell you cant even skate for five minutes before authority kicks us out. Most skaters do understand, but they don't understand why the city doesn't do something so we can skate and have more freedom.
The only thing that the city has done is spend money on putting up skateboard blockers and closing off things that are known to be skated on. People in Coppell are getting the wrong image on skateboarders because they think most of us are punks, thugs, and even gang members but were not! We're just regular people with a passion for doing what we love to do. Skateboarding is not a crime, but its also not legal in most places in Coppell. Many skateboarders in Coppell have to drive to cites such as Allen and Plano to get to a skatepark. For kids they can't just hop into a car and go they have to find rides there and back and that can be a hassle. We need something more local.
Coppell has built tracks for joggers and bikers, public parks for families and other citizens, jungle gyms for kids, basketball courts for basketball players, baseball/softball fields, and football fields, where is the place for skateboarders? A skatepark will benefit both skateboarders and the community. The skateboarders will have a safe place to skate freely with no trouble or hassle, the community will most likely show a decrease in property damage and skateboarder reports to police.
We are judged because we do something different! There are hundreds of skateboarders in Coppell alone and we need some where to be free to skate and have fun! That's why I think its time for Coppell to get a skatepark, if you agree your signature will be appreciated because it shows skateboarders that you care.
