Oppose Artificial Turf And Lights At Heather School
- San Carlos City Council
- United States of America
The San Carlos Parks and Recreation Commission voted on April 7th to recommend replacement of the natural grass field at Heather Elementary School with synthetic turf and field lighting.
We, the undersigned, oppose the recommendation of the San Carlos Parks and Recreation Commission to install synthetic turf and lights at Heather Elementary School.
It will transform a neighborhood elementary school into a sports complex with the capacity for athletic events from 8:00 AM to 10:00 PM, 365 days per year.
Home values will permanently decline, due to the loss of evening views, increased noise and increased traffic.
The project will consume a significant portion of Measure G citywide park funds, not meet current youth sport field needs and will generate a known deficit.
We urge you not to approve the Park and Recreation Commission recommendation for adding synthetic turf and lighting at Heather School until a comprehensive and creative assessment of alternatives has been completed.
