Arlington Skate Park started this petition to Mayor and Town Alderman

Arlington TN needs an Outdoor Municipal Skate Park.  Currently in Arlington, there is not much for older kids to do.  It has come to the attention of parents and elected officials kids are skateboarding in a  public place elected officials have deemed inappropriate to skateboard.  Some have even gone as far as to recommend prosecuting kids skateboarding for doing fundamental skateboarding tricks or even riding their skateboard on the property.  This is an unacceptable approach.  If the kids have nowhere to go skate, they will continue to go where elected officials have falsely deemed them a nuisance. No parent wants their kids arrested or "locking them up for a few hours" to "scare the crap out of them" as one person offered as a solution.

So we are proposing for the Town of Arlington to build ALL KIDS, YOUNG AND OLD, an outdoor municipal skate park.  It would be a place were all kids are welcome and safe and under the watchful eye of everyone present.  It would give them a place to go and view as their own within their own community.  Kids should not be dependent upon their parents to drive them to another city or state just to enjoy their sport of choice.  Many regional municipalities have public skate parks, and so should Arlington.

A Skate Park in Arlington would be an asset to the community and continue to give a healthy outlet to kids for decades to come.  In order to secure funding for this venture, WE need YOUR SUPPORT.  We need supporters so we can petition for grants, we need supporters to help raise private donations, we need supporters to cruise the neighborhood collecting signatures for tangible petitions, and MOST IMPORTANTLY we need supporters to let OUR elected officials know what we want for our KIDS, YOUNG and OLD.
