Hi Neighbours,

I am writing looking for support with my request to Halifax Parks & Rec to designate the field at Tupper as a sports field . It is currently designated as a ‘green space’, and consequently gets the very minimum amount of maintenance allotted for green spaces and fields in HRM. A designation would potentially allow for more regular mowing, and could also see some seed/soil, improved drainage or new sod. I am submitting this as a resident request, and not as a parent of SCT, though I do have two children who attend the school. The field is owned by the city, not the school board. Please also know that I do sit on the PTA for the school, and we have explored many options to repair and maintain the field over a number of years. Regular maintenance that the city could provide through this designation would allot funds upwards of 10K-15K bi-annually.

As someone who frequents the green space regularly, I know that this space gets a lot of use by the students during the school day, by pre-schools in the area, by families and friends who live close by. Improvements are needed and would benefit the community greatly.

If you would be so kind as to include your support by name, I will be submitting this to Shawn Cleary, our district 9 councillor, for review in the upcoming weeks.
