PETITION FOR USE OF MORRIS FEILD FOR AUTO SWAP MEETS

We, the undersigned, do hereby petition to the Mayor and Village Council of Los Lunas to continue to allow the auto hobbyist to use the Morris Field Sports Complex for automobile swap meets. The annual swap meets have used this facility since 2006. These swap meets have been benificial to the hobbyists and have brought thousands of visitors into Los Lunas to stay in motels, eat at the restaurants and shop at the businesses. The swap meet organizers have met and cooperated with the Village and Parks people, which has helped the meets grow every year. The Swap Meet organizers and participants petition the Village government to continue to allow us to use Morris Field for these great events.

    This is a great source to encourage the car hobbyist trend. Occupies multiple individuals time and money for the community. Teaches teenage kids to establish working skills, as well as pride in accomplishing something of value. Too many opportunities are being eliminated from people, whether it be a Veteran, high School child, a retiree, this can be seen as a learning opportunity as well as therapy for those in need.

    Where is the issue? The swap meet is the yearly fund raiser for the Route 66 Rodders (spring meet) and fund generator for the NM Council of Car Clubs (fall meet). The auto parts sellers are grateful to have use of this venue, the shoppers come from around the county to buy. Both these groups generate money for the local economy. The hosting car groups in turn donate money (rent) for use of the grounds/fields to the Village government. Our commitment to Los Lunas has been to return Morris Field free of trash and debris, for continued use as the Sports Complex. We have kept our word, please allow us to continue to use your grounds.

    What are some comments from established businesses and new businesses since the meet has been there? Have they seen growth? What about getting the high school involved or donating a car to their automotive shop?
