Save Durkin Park
Scottsdale Neighborhood Watch and residents are asking Ald. Curtis to step up and reconsider the planned construction purchased land from Durkin Park in exchange for a bigger pumping Station to pump water to Joliet. SNW is concerned about the health of residents and the possible lowering of home values with the expansion of this pumping Station. Many residents utilize Durkin Park to excerise, play sports, or simply to relax with nature. Eliminating 87,000sq ft of Park District land will reduce space for residents to do all these activities while increasing carbon emissions from the removal of green space. People buy homes next to parks because of the accessibility to the green space for their families. By reducing space this may lead to lower home values and a less desirable community to move into. We ask you residents of Scottsdale to support this petition and for Ald. Curtis to put this planned redevelopment of green space on hold and listen to his constitutes.
