Bring Ice and Field Sports to Santa Monica Airport
We the people residing in the City of Santa Monica and neighboring communities highly encourage the Santa Monica City Council to proactively take the steps to allow and help facilitate the
Construction of a free-standing, multi-purpose Sports Complex that includes a two-three surface ice rink facility and multiple food and gathering space for the community as well as 3 additional sports fields within the 12 acres available to the public at the Santa Monica Airport.
We the undersigned believe this facility will serve the not only the local Santa Monica community’s needs but those of the Greater Los Angeles Area needs for recreation entertainment. The facility will bring significant round-the-clock revenue to the City and provide a win/win usage for enhancing the revitalization of the Santa Monica Airport, diversify the athletic programs of Santa Monica schools, bring community involvement and enjoyment to the residents, and provide Santa Monica and surrounding neighborhood businesses with revenue. This is an exceptional opportunity for the City of Santa Monica to team up with the Los Angeles Kings and LA Galaxy to create a world-class facility to benefit the community and fill a major void of skating on the Westside of Los Angeles where we clearly need ice.
Furthermore we understand that the funding of such a facility would require a combination of sources that may include crowdfunding, city funding, major corporate funding and management. WE WILL SUBMITTED OUR Second BATCH OF SIGNATURES TO THE NEXT CITY COUNCIL MEETING when the item is on their agenda.
