PETITION TO HALT PUBLIC FUNDS FOR ARTIFICIAL TURF AT WILDCAT AND MIDDLE FIELDS TO ALLOW A MORE OPEN PUBLIC INPUT PROCESS
The residents of Mt. Lebanon, who have signed below, oppose the installation of artificial turf on our playing fields at this time. We ask that the Mt. Lebanon Commission:
1) stop further commitment of public funds for the Wildcat and Middle Fields Artificial Turf Project and
2) sponsor a more open public discussion that addresses resident concerns about artificial turf: safety, cost, environmental sustainability, impact on the immediate neighborhood and a discussion of alternatives.
We believe that a $1 million governmental project that commits large public funds outlays every eight years in perpetuity, with known health, environmental, and neighborhood concerns warrants broad public outreach by the government on the issue and community-wide discussion.
