I am currently a resident of Ames, Iowa, I have noticed very limited activities for youth to engage in. my proposal is an indoor roller rink. I know it might be a pricey project but I think it could provide opportunities for ames such as jobs and revenue. It was really hard for me to find my first job because of age restrictions and i feel strongly that a roller rink would provide age appropriate opportunities. some pros to this proposal is as follows, it would prevent youth from loitering at the mall, it would be ideal because it would not be impacted by the weather because of the indoor facilities. in the past its been a popular attraction that many citizens of ames miss, there is even a facebook page for people to reminisce about j-4 rollaway. that roller rink was a part of the community for around 20 years proving that its a sustainable business. i would propose the location to be on the south/south-east side of ames, then the business would attract revenue not only from ames but also from the smaller communities surrounding ames. it would provide an opportunity for the students of ames to connect with surrounding communities. it would also provide a chance for physical activity, pulling people away from computers and gaming systems. schools have moved to mostly electronic school work, so just for school 8 hours a day we are on electronics then at home most students have phones, t.v's, laptops, game systems etc. I think that this is just the tip of the iceberg of reasons this would be good for our community and surrounding communities.  this petition provides an opportunity for youth to get to use their voice and state desire on how to develop a community in which they will grow in.
