Glossodia dirt facility

This petition had 110 supporters

It has come to my attention that the Glossodia bike trails could be under risk of demolition by the local council.
These trails have been an integral part of the lives of thousands of Hawkesbury residents and are a vital part of our tight knit community. We are reaching out to our local members for permission to approve and protect our trails and be apart of the BMX family and culture we have worked hard for years to establish and protect. We understand that these types of facilities are hard to define and regulate, but as we feel so passionate about them we are happy and willing to work together with the council to help them become a legitimate part of our community.
I, along with everyone else who has spent any time at the Glossodia BMX trails knows that the people who use this area treat it with respect and always leave with a smile on their face, grateful that they have somewhere unique like this to spend their time. The close proximity of the trails to local shops also helps boost our local economy by putting money from our users straight back into our important small businesses, which has a roll on effect and a hugely positive influence on our suburb.
With this petition, I am hoping to achieve for someone in our local government to take notice of how crucial it is for us to have somewhere safe and inclusive to explore our hobby whilst getting exercise, having fun and growing as individuals. We aren't looking for funding of any kind, just support. If there are any rules, guidelines or codes we need to adhere to, we are all more than happy to abide by them as long as it means we get to keep this place we all hold so close to our hearts.
These trails attract both national and international visitors to Glossodia to enjoy a world class BMX facility and immerse themselves in our local culture.
Please help us save Glossodia trails, thanks for reading, and thanks for signing!
