City Commission, City of Lawrence: Public vote on the public financing of the regional rec center

    1. Petition by

      nick danger

The sales tax that will fund this was authorized nearly 20 years ago, and given the many other pressing, community needs these funds could be used for, to commit all of the funds from this tax for the next 20 years to this single project needs approval from the public at large. Please schedule a referendum on this issue for the election that will take place in April of 2013.

      Make improvements to the current rec centers and playing fields first. Locations that might actually help the kids in this city that need it most. I say all of the city commissioners should take a tour of the work out room in the downtown rec. center before they should be allowed to continue.

      I will not see public dollars going to a man who refuses to pay his taxes. How can he not contribute to the public fund, but feel he should somehow be the recipient of the money in that fund?

      Recreation sites should be spread throughout the city to make them accessible on foot and by bike, rather than by cars only. Kids and younger teenagers can't drive, and adults would benefit from the walk. Also, during the weekdays the indoor track will be quite short, a poor design.

      I do not think it is a good idea for public financing with sales taxes to support the funding of the regional rec center project.

      This costs too much for it not to be approved by voters.
