scalzi skatepark started this petition to City of Stamford and

In 2007 the city Stamford (through the great power of protests and relentless efforts of the local community) approved for a skate park built by Grindline. Grindline has built hundreds if not thousands of skate parks throughout the United States, which some very well have lights for a evening activity. Now here in stamford Connecticut Scalzi Park has lights for almost every activity, field , court at Scalzi Park except the skate park. From baseball to football to the basketball courts to the tennis courts to even the bocce and handball all are lit up and if I’m not mistaken even the playground itself has lights. The skate park at Scalzi Park in Stamford Connecticut is one of the top attractions at Scalzi Park. Not just opened and played on during days of games or practices. No the skate park is open seven days a week and people from all over come to visit Scalzi skate park.This year alone in 2020 as hard as it was for the world. The skateboarding community at scalzi has came together stronger than ever and has pulled off events and even professional skateboarder‘s have came to visit Scalzi Park to visit the skate park. With lights at Scalzi skate park we can achieve Control so it’s not as crowded during the day being able to broaden the range of times that we are able to use the skate park, witch will allow less people at once which is ideal especially during Covid. The city of Stamford should have someone to come fourth and lock the skate parks gate every night so nobody breaks in. Failing to do so results in non-skaters coming in at hours they are not supposed to ruining our place of action sports and put graffiti all over it. That results in two groups being highly upset #1 the city of Stamford because that’s property that they paid for and to most importantly the skateboarders because that’s very dangerous as the paint is 20 times more slip than the original concrete. Graffiti on the skate park alone is liability liability. If stamford was to grant Scalzi skate park lights that would mean that we would be able to solidify a committee to lock the gates at night so no one can further damage to the park and they can also guarantee the younger kids more freedom during their earlier sessions, versus the evening skate sessions the older gentleman can enjoy.  With the great power of your voice we can make a change. This is something that the community has Really wanted since 2007. At the moment you can probably see a vast amount of younger kids on scooters with parents and a lot of the times they are put in danger and get in the way of the older kids skateboarding at high speeds resulting in some young kids possibly getting hurt. Even though the rules on the Scalzi skate park fence clearly state this is a skate park not for bikers, rollerbladers nor scooters and that it is also not for beginners. We still allow these kids and families to come in and have a great time and we welcome them with open arms. With lights once again as I reiterate can almost split us up so it’s less of a chance that anyone could either get hurt, sick or furthermore. This isnt something that happens overnight but this is something that can happen. Next year will make it 15 years Scalzi skatepark has been open!!! Wow! I believe it’s time to make this happen!! If You have ever visited Scalzi skate park or enjoyed it over the years be a big help in making this change because I guarantee everybody will be More than happy to see not only lights but a huge change in the structure of the park so we can guarantee safety as far as social distancing, the liability of more paint on the skate park and more. We are Scalzi skatepark and our Community is stronger than ever! let’s show the city of Stamford why we are one of the top attractions within Scalzi Park and the city of Stamford! - Scalzi skatepark
