To preserve funding for Los Angeles City parks and parks programming

    1. Petition by

      Sean Rossall

Millions of Angelenos use city parks and the programs they offer, yet only amount for 2 percent of the city’s budget. Pledge to help protect funding for Los Angeles City’s parks and park programs, so they remain viable and accessible to all communities. Park programs are a critical part of promoting a stronger, healthier and safer Los Angeles.

The Parks Save! campaign is launching in response to proposed cuts to parks and park programs—organized sports, job training, youth orchestra and hundreds of other activities—in the city’s budget. The campaign will underscore how the economic and social benefits of parks programs far outweigh the short-term revenue that might be generated from cutting these vital services.

A broad and diverse coalition of nonprofits, educators, youth advocates, parents, young people, conservationists and civic leaders will launch the Parks Save! campaign to help protect parks and park programs. The members of Parks Save! believe parks provide valuable services that benefit families, children, and seniors. We must protect these vital services by urging the City of Los Angeles to preserve funding levels for the Department of Recreation and Parks.

      As a City Employee for Rec & Parks, I understand that private companies & instutions would willingly donate monies in partnership with the City for programs support WITHOUT privatization of the workers, IF $ is not siphoned out the back door into general funds through "charge-backs" but truly goes directly into programs developement.
