Why this petition matters

Started by Aiden Kamerman

Skateboarding has always been a very popular thing all over Westchester County, NY. However, NYS does have Skateparks, just none in Bedford Hills. I've noticed a significant amount of Skaters outside; the percentage of what it used to be, compared to how many Skaters exist now is extremely higher up. We need a Skatepark in Bedford Hills. The youth, kids, teens, even adults and heck, I saw an old man Skateboarding around.... but they do it in the streets, empty parking lots, roads, areas that aren't safe and aren't specifically built for a Skateboard, none the less a Skater. Sure, you could Skate but then there's the risk of being hit by a car. So I am asking, we have had that empty lot, that empty building The Rugged Bear has been empty for many years, almost a decade if not a full decade. Why not build a Skatepark there? It could be outdoors, there would be plenty of space, it would safer than Skating in the streets where Skateboarders have been hit by cars and I've seen it in the Record Review. Please, consider this and that location. Not only is Skateboarding a great form of exercise and outdoor activity, it's a sport, a sport that you can wear protective gear for and still be 6 ft apart. Please..
