Save Lisa's Learning Center of Keene, TX

After successfully operating 15 years a child-care-home in Keene, TX. The City of Keene is attempting to put Lisa Parrish out of business. She has been required to use a Special Use Permit since 2002. Other day cares in the same area are not required to use a special use permit. She has never received a complaint from the state or the city in her 15 years. She appeared before the Planning & Zoning Commission on Monday July 31 and at that meeting the P&Z voted to recommend to the council the renewal of the Special Use Permit, pending the submission of the site plan.

On Thursday, August 24th, at 7:00 pm, the City Council of Keene, TX will be  taking their final action on this matter. I will be trying to attend in person. But I am not sure if I can go.  If you can't attend, you can call City Hall 817 558-3336 ask to leave a voicemail for the City Manager and let him know how you feel. Better yet show up and look those people directly in the eye!!

Attending Lisa's Learning Center was a one of my kid's turning points. My kids had severe food allergies and severe asthma. She was a daycare that I could trust my kids with 100%. She motivated them, educated them and loved them as her own. My youngest still dreams of working at Lisa's Learning Center once she is old enough. If it was not for Lisa and her day care a single parent (at that time) would of had serious struggles. I was able to confide in Lisa and get the support I needed as well. She is more than just a daycare provider. She is a friend to all the parents and keep in touch with the children as they grow. The kid's accomplishments are her accomplishments.  My children attend from 2003 to 2008. We have since moved several time but yet every time we are in Texas we make a point to stop by and visit Lisa and her family. 

Please sign this petition to help keep Lisa's Learning Center open.  It would be a disservice to the community and the children if they are able to close the best day care in the country.
