Folsom, CA - Mayor and City Council members
United States of America

Resolution No. 9511 from February 24, 2015 approving The Park and Recreation Master Plan – 2015 Plan Update include following programming for Econome Family Park located in our neighborhood (Next to North Parkway and Blue Ravine crossing):
• Two lighted synthetic turf soccer fields
• Two lighted tennis courts
• Lighted basketball court
• Parking for approximately 135+/- vehicles and drop-off area
• Children’s play equipment area, group picnic area, restrooms.

Proposed lighted synthetic turf fields will result in up to a 3 times increase of park use comparing to unlighted natural grass fields. It will also drastically extend park operating hours (up to 11pm), generate heavy traffic and additional noise to our neighborhood.

Neighborhood Park such as this should not become heavy lit urban area, disrupted by traffic and noise resulting from evening sports activities. With those enhancements park will not serve our neighborhoods but mainly professional sports leagues.

We, the undersigned, strongly oppose the installation of sport field lighting, synthetic turf on soccer fields and large parking lot as part of The Econome Family Park development.
