For the last few years I have been growing increasingly impatient with the City of Brampton over its neglected promise to rebuild the outdoor bowl it removed for parking at Brampton Memorial Arena. 5 years ago when it was removed, then Mayorial Candidate Susan Fennell (current Mayor) promised the BMLA while attending an awards ceremony (Brampton Minor Lacrosse Assoc.), that because of the removal of the BMLA owned outdoor facility there would be not one but two new outdoor facilities built to replace it. They were to be built at the old OPP fields next to the former Vanier Jail. This has obviously not transpired, instead another worthy cause Variety Village is hoping to purchase the land for thier own needs, good for them I hope they get it! However where is the one Bowl going to be built Nevermind the two Bowls promised to be built to replace the \"missing\" one. It is our hope that this petition can help persuade City Council into comming to a quick decision on this matter.

Comments: I HAVE NOTICED SINCE SUMMER OF 2007, AT THE OLD OPP GROUNDS THERE IS AN OUTSIDE BOWL/ARENA BUT NEVER FINISHED IS THERE ANY INTENT TO COMPLETE THIS ARENA FOR THE CHILDREN OF OUR COMMUNITY I STILL FEEL VERY SADDENED THE "OLD BOWL" AT MEMORIAL ARENA WAS TAKEN DOWN, I AM NOW 39YRS OLD AND HAVE MANY, MANY HAPPY PLAYFUL MEMORIES AT THE BOWL. ALTHOUGH THE NEW OUTDOOR ARENA HAS "STARTED" TO LOOK NICE, THE LOCATION IS NOT REALLY AS CENTRAL AS THE "OLD BOWL" LOCATION WAS! PLEASE MAYOR SUSAN: GIVE THE KIDS OF TODAY THE SAME OPPORTUNITY I HAD - TO HAVE LAST MEMORIES OF JOYFUL PLAY IN OUR GREAT CITY OF BRAMPTON!!!! THANK YOU!
