for Youth Oriented Activities

Target: Las Vegas City Council Sponsored by: The youth of Las Vegas NM The community of Las Vegas New Mexico continues to be struck with tragedy due to the carelessness of our political leaders for they do not see the issues at hand.The Alternative youth demands for something to do that is "outside the box" This includes Skateboarding and Bmx,etc. Support for these activities are not provided.Everyone within the community is affected by the vandalism caused by this repression. Due to the lack of efficient hours at the Abe Montoya recreation center skate-park,many kids find themselves with no outlets and nothing to do-nowhere to go for several hours.Kids who ride bmx bicycles are prohibited from this park and can only resort to riding elsewhere.Skateboarders and bikers alike agree that the sanctions put upon them are unfair and demand attention. By signing this petition we take the first step towards getting our voice heard! Call to action: Call for a youth oriented place of expression for alternative youth to occupy. Call for a skate-park that includes bmx as well as skateboarding. watch this video for more insight: https://vimeo.com/43907696

  • Crystall Rains Vegas needs something for our youth!

  • Elena Duran My family and I lived in Las Vegas for many years & one of the few activities in that town, is, the skate park. There is a need for a bigger and better park, as well as other activities for the youth of the town. I would love to help in any way I can in assisting the youth of Las Vegas obtain a bigger, more challenging, and more importantly, safer & adequate park. I would suggest drawing up a proposal & submitting it to Rob Derek's street leagues parks. My family and I now live in Loveland Colorado & there is a Street League sponsored skate park in Eerie Colorado which is not far from where we currently live. This sponsorship could help with the layout of a park as well as possible funds. Hey, it's worth a try, right???? Much luck to you in this endevour, I would love to see this project succeed!!!!
