April Kabbash started this petition to Chatham Borough and

I join with Chatham Skatepark Committee to support building a new skatepark in Chatham, NJ. I urge Chatham Borough and Chatham Township to collaborate with residents to allocate land and financing, together with private fundraising, to support this initiative. 
 
Chatham Township and Chatham Borough should commit to replacing the skatepark dismantled to make way for affordable housing. A new skatepark would promote youth development, health, and wellness by enhancing and expanding recreational opportunities through the development of a safe, well-designed skatepark for skating, scootering, and in-line skating. 
 
Chatham officials have heard presentations about the new skatepark and have engaged in discussions about planning this project. We need their commitment on a location to move forward. 
 
The Chatham Skatepark provided a safe, fun place for skaters of all ages to practice their sport. We have many fields and courts for baseball, soccer, basketball, and lacrosse, but no where for kids to practice the sport of skateboarding. One of the nation’s fastest-growing sports (now featured in the Olympics), skateboarding provides kids and adults the chance to master new skills and tricks, while getting some exercise in the fresh air. Now, more than ever, all of our kids need that opportunity.
 
If you are a skater, know a skater, love a skater, or just don’t want to see our town lose such a great recreational amenity, please sign this petition urging a commitment from Chatham Township and Chatham Borough and show your support for a new skatepark!
