Michael Panchery started this petition to APEX Sports and Events and

The township of Hillsborough, NJ, was delighted to hear about the groundbreaking of the new APEX Sports and Events facility. This complex would provide not only a new home for many of Hillsborough's sports, but also serve as an invaluable fun and recreation center. While it spans 55 square miles, Hillsborough does not have much to do, especially for youth and teens.

The addition of an ice rink to the APEX Sports and Events facility would be extremely significant. It would provide residents with a new form of entertainment, whether through public skating, figure skating, or spectating hockey games, and likewise, provide Hillsborough's hockey team a permanent home. Hockey is undoubtedly the most up-and-coming sport in town, with nearly 30 players on the varsity team and an estimated 50+ in middle and elementary schools. Not to mention, it would provide those interested a chance to play. 

Ice rinks are on the upswing, with a national $883m in revenue in 2019 and a five-year growth rate of 2.6% nationally (Source). Economically, the return-on-investment is clear- rinks are highly profitable.

We, not only as members of the hockey program, but as residents, would like to see an ice rink installed in our hometown of Hillsborough. Thank you.
