Local Community Petitioning to Save Recreational Area

This petition had 359 supporters

This petition is solely intended to request a fair lease that would reflect the previous lease WITHOUT limitations that were presented by the Aultman VFD. Limitations include, limited recreational use of the top field where the new trail is, having to submit any future improvements to the Aultman VFD for a vote, it was stated the field needs to be left open for gun bash parking and life flight landing zone.

We understand the concern for life flight to have access to this field but, we are also aware of other life flight landing areas around the Aultman area within the same distance from 286 that are just as easily accessible. So to "reserve" the property as a permanent and regular landing zone to only transport patients to the Aultman field is unnecessary.

Many residents have expressed safety concerns with life flight landing in such a closed community so close to houses.

We are petitioning to have a fair park lease drawn up that reflects the previous lease that has no limitations. We do not feel that it is fair that the community should lose privileges to the track for gun bash parking that happens 2 times a year and for the occasional need for life flight. This is not fair to our community and the children of the community. Behind the fire hall would be sufficient ( once cleared and graveled to the tree line) if the hall would abide by the capacity limitations.

We also feel it is unfair for a group of "volunteers" to dictate how a lease is drawn up on land they do not personally own. We are NOT against the fire hall and it's functions as they are here to protect and serve the community.

Action Petitioned For: We the undersigned are concerned citizens who urge our leaders to act now to ensure the residents are not restricted using property that was originally intended for recreational purposes. Thank you
