Support a Community Center at 51 Green Street

This petition had 252 supporters

Dear President Roth,

As members of the Middletown community, including Wesleyan students and staff, we believe that the space on 51 Green St, current site of the Green Street Teaching and Learning Center, is a vital location for a community center in Middletown. We have heard about the proposal within the city government to move St. Vincent's soup kitchen into the space. We have also heard that the city is considering opening a new satellite police station there. We do not believe that either of these ideas are beneficial to the community in the same way that Green Street was, and are an inefficient use of a valuable space. We've also heard of proposals from within our community to start a new community center program. We think this would be a much better use of the location, and would provide a necessary resource to the entire Middletown community, including Wesleyan. With this in mind, we would like to encourage you to support community-oriented uses of the space, and potentially sponsor proposals that further this goal of a community center.
