Why Is This Even Being Considered?

Having lived in this lovely town for over 50 years, raised children here, and been community involved, I have to say I am a bit taken aback that desiring an almost 10,000 sq. foot building for kids, as has been requested by one of the local churches, is something to even be considered.

This is one of the most desirable outdoor habitats in the country and it has been my experience that is where children want to be. Whether surfing, swimming, sailing, golfing, slamming soccer and volley balls…the list goes on…they are happiest when there are activities under the sun and sky. We are even lucky enough to have a great recreational center with an abundance of programs.

I thank the two Council members that voted against this. If there is that much desire for a place where kids can hang out…then consider more outdoor space.

Please…don’t put them behind walls.

Thank you
