Sarah Hansen started this petition to Springfield City Council and

My husband and I have three boys. We encourage them to play outside, learn a sport, and practice good sportsmanship. So we put up a portable Basketball hoop. Not in the street but at the curb. The hoop has been there for 6 years and they love it! Our neighbors play on it, another neighbors grandchild would visit and he would play on it as well. It keeps them active, out of trouble, and helps them to create lasting memories with family and friends. Our oldest broke his foot three years ago and it was a way for him to rehabilitate himself before trying out for the school team again. Now more than ever, our children need a way to be outside and be active. With the looming pandemic, it has prohibited them from taking part in their normal activities. While we thought we were providing our children with excellent activity and a source of exercise, someone decided that their innocent fun needed to cease. We are asking our fellow neighbors to help us change this law of not allowing basketball hoops at the curbside. We live on a cul de sac so their playing does not prohibit the flow of traffic nor do they cause any damage to vehicles that may be parked on the street. My husband and I understand that while this hoop has been purchased for our children all children on this street are welcome to use it and if they should break it, we are liable to replace it. Please help us to fight for our children's fun and athletics.
