No Funding for Blake Lane Park Destruction - Transfer Land to FCPA!
We urge the Board of Supervisors to save Blake Lane Park, by removing the $35.3 million for construction of a "Fairfax Oakton Area ES" from the 2019 School Bond Referendum.
Update: The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors have voted unanimously to amend the request from Fairfax County Public Schools by adding the language "site to be determent" to the school board referendum which will be included on the ballot on November 5.
Watch the bond referendum and hear what the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors thoughts are on Blake Lane Park. Hear for yourself how far we have made it in the efforts of saving our park.
Blake Lane Park dialogue starts at 2:04:38 (Action Item 4)
Why this petition:
We oppose school planning that pits schools against parks: our children need both, and adults need parks, too. A school area is not a park - it is, for example, closed to the public much of the day, while school is in session. Blake Lane Park is the backyard of all the families living in the nearby townhouses: their one and only nearby green-space.
Help us transfer Blake Lane Park to Fairfax County Park Authority!
