Douglas, MI residents Kate and Heather have been fighting since 2006 to close the playground at an Early Childhood Center (ECC) next to their home. In response to their complaints about noise, the state of Michigan recently ordered the Saugatuck Public Schools to "immediately cease and desist" from using the playground. At the time, the playground was being used for only 30 minutes a day.
Help save play in Michigan! Contact state official Todd Cordill, who issued the cease-and-desist order, and express your support for continued use of the ECC playground.
To close the playground means depriving young children of 30 minutes of daily, outdoor play. Please don't take that away from them! I am writing to urge you to revoke your cease-and-desist order.
Thank you for your time.
