Dear Sir,

We request you to consider our petition for the community center for local areas , where all community citizen can meet and interact. We will develop the place by local donation which will be open for all communities . Navi Mumbai has grown very rapidly but social life is dying where our very old culture is slowly becoming aboslete . Please find various study as below which shows positive impact of community center .

1-The social bonds that are created at community centers help build strong, safe and inclusive communities; social interaction, volunteerism, civic pride and aesthetics all play a role. After-school programs can help deter at-risk youth from criminal activities and can provide a constructive environment. 

2-A vibrant, active community can help influence other citizens of all ages to be more active in their lives, creating a positive cascading effect. Participating in sports can help increase civic engagement, especially with community centers that are attached to libraries and other municipal resources.

3-A quality recreation center is a valuable asset to any community. A thriving hub of activity, a well-run community center serves the needs of area youth, families, senior citizens, parks and recreation departments, civic organizations and more.

4-A vibrant community recreation center can have a stabilizing effect on the lives of young people. By providing safe and adequately equipped spaces for physical activities like dance, martial arts, yoga, basketball and other sports, community centers instill discipline, healthy exercise habits and teamwork in area youth.

Empowering youth and allowing them the opportunity to participate in the community has shown to benefit their development greatly (Brennan and Barnett 2009; Brennan, Barnett, and Baugh 2007; Brennan, Brennan, Barnett, McGrath 2009; Crooks et al., 2009; Ludden 2011; Pearrow 2008; Wilson, Minkler, Dasho, Wallerstein, and Martin 2008). When youth become engaged in community activities they develop the skills needed to be an effective leader.

Brennan and Barnett (2009) concluded that youth who are engaged in community efforts at a young age show better problem-solving and decision-making skills when compared to those youth who are not engaged. Similarly, Brennan, Barnett, and Lesmeister (2007) reported that youth who have been empowered by the community are likely to be future leaders.

5-Recreation facilities are incredibly important for a healthy, vibrant community. These recreation or community centers provide opportunities for residents to be active and to interact with other residents. They are common ground areas that are focused on inclusivity, while fostering a culture of health and well being in the communities they serve.

6- There are places which were planned by Cidco  but we cannot see any movement.Either encroachment on the places or it is still waiting for development.

7- In every area we find citizens gathering for yoga every Sunday but due to lack of spaces they are unable to practice same. Thanks to Sri Sri Ravi Shankar AOL, Baba Ramdev for imparting such things in citizen. but the effect of doing at home is different than practicing with other resident which will definitely increase the social cohesion.
