West Point Playground Restoration

The community of West Point, Hempfield Township PA (located east of Pittsburgh) had at one time a playground. The Government failed to maintain the land and the playground since closed, posted "NO TRESSPASSING". ALL other Hempfield housing plans have a township run/owned playground except us. The land is there, we want the township to simply clean it up, put some swings and a basketball hoop on it so that our children can enjoy it.
Why should we be excluded from having a recreational area when we pay the same taxes as other township residents.
We, the undersigned, petition the Township Supervisors of Hempfield Township, Westmoreland County PA to restore land situated between Westland and Fairfield Drives (in the WEST POINT plan) to an active playground. This land is designated by law as recreational area and should be available to the citizens as such. We call upon the supervisors to act upon this request, allocate funding, plan, contruct and otherwise oversee a usable playground.
