Shepherdsville Skate Plaza
Petition Background (Preamble):
For years, police officers and business owners have run off kids skateboarding on their property due to damaged property and/or bodily injuries. Why must we keep shutting out kids from doing what they love to do? Building a skate plaza in the City of Shepherdsville benefits more than just the kids involved in extreme sports; it also gives a beautiful scenery and a wonderful addition to a city park.
A skate plaza is nothing more than taking the ideas and layouts of street skating spots, and combining them into one local area that is not illegal for skaters to go to. The benefits highly out-weigh the costs for this project. Skaters will have a legal place to skate, kids will be off the streets, it would bring in tourism, and it would help lower the number of teens getting hooked on drugs and alcohol because they would have a place to go and be themselves and be active in sports.
Studies have shown that most kids get involved in illegal activities due to not having anywhere to go and be involved. The construction of a skate plaza in Shepherdsville will definitely have a positive impact on the community and help keep our children active and safe!
