Community Access to Community Centers
We the taxpayers of Lexington-Fayette Urban County need community access to Castlewood, Dunbar, Kenwick, William Wells Brown, and Charles Young community centers to provide our youth with safe, productive programming and to reduce the gun violence and delinquent behavior that results from youth being idle.
Community centers offer the ability to engage youth in sports, which according to studies will increase self-esteem, improve grades, and decrease negative behaviors. We believe that a city with record homicides and drug overdoses multiple years in a row should prioritize any and every effort to keep the citizens of this city safe. However, that doesn’t seem to be the primary concern of the current administration, so we the people are demanding that the LFUCG not only listen to our requests, but also implement the necessary policies immediately
