Tiana Taylor started this petition to City of Vancouver and

An application has been filed with the City to "change the use from Community Centre to Restaurant" to allow Romer's restaurant to take-over the Neighbourhood Community Centre space at 8683 Kerr Street.

Included in the Application is:
1. "the expansion of store footprint to become 5813.3 sq. ft with a total capacity of 150 persons"
2.  expanding the "hours of operation: 9 am – 12 am, seven days a week."

The problems this will create include:

-Removes the only public community centre space in a growing neighbourhood (the next one is "planned" for 2027)
- Increases the hours to 12am on weekdays of a liquor serving establishment surrounded by residential buildings
- Removes available and limited parking to residents with an ever growing population
- Assumes we don't value the community space, programs, events
-Implies we don't have an appetite for programs for youth, seniors, new parents, families, fitness, arts, culture, new immigrants, opportunities to interact, meet, play with our neighbours 

This proposal has been rushed and without active outreach to the community members and residents for feedback and input. Sign the petition to keep our community space OURS!
