Re Build the Ben Soto Skate Park on Father Capodanno Blvd!
This petition is to help rebuild the Ben Soto Skate park on Father Capadano Blvd located at Midland Beach Staten Island. The Ben Soto Skate park is falling apart and becoming dangerous to the community that uses it. With the growing number of Skaters and BMX Riders on Staten Island it would be in the PUBLIC's best interest to rebuild the park with a new concrete park. This would be much safer for the riders and would hold up much better in the harsh North East climates. Staten Island is the only borough WITHOUT a concrete skate park. They had recently built 2 skate plazas in Manhattan, 1 in Queens and 1 in Brooklyn. The borough President James Molinaro announced the plans to build a $1,000,000.00 skate park in Staten Island. By signing this petition you feel it would be better for the Skate and BMX community if the money were spent on the Ben Soto Skate park and the neighboring softball field which has visitors from all of the outer boroughs and has easy access to public transportation including the Staten Island Rapid Transit.
