Let\'s Keep Municipal Stadium An Amatuer Facility
**UPDATE** The Waterbury Park Board denied the request to bring a semi-professional soccer team to Municipal Stadium by unanimous vote of 9-0 on Tuesday night. This petition along with its 214 signatures was brought to the board at the meeting and they were very pleased to see so many on this side of the issue. Thank you very much for your support of the Waterbury youth. **UPDATE** Municipal Stadium is only days away from the Waterbury Board of Park Commissioners agreeing to a proposal converting the current facility into a semi-professional soccer-only facility. Municipal Stadium would be used by the out-of-town Connecticut Hammers organization for approximately 10-15 games during the course of the year. This would result in the displacement of the hundreds of games that are scheduled at the Stadium. Games are currently being played beginning in the middle of March and run through the end of October. It is used by varying groups from the Waterbury Youth Leagues, Waterbury High Schools, Teikyo Post University, AAU, American Legion and the Twi-Met league among others. We are asking you to sign our petition to keep Municipal Stadium as it is. Without your support and the support of others all of these players will be forced off of their diamond. Please send this petition to anyone you think this might interest, it is imperative that we get the word out as quickly as possible. If you are interested in finding out other ways to show your support please email firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more. Thank you very much! WE, THE UNDERSIGNED TAXPAYERS OF THE CITY OF WATERBURY AND ITS NEIGHBORING COMMUNITIES AND OTHER CONCERNED CITIZENS, ARE OPPOSED TO THE PROPOSAL TO CONVERT MUNICIPAL STADIUM TO A PROFESSIONAL SOCCER FACILITY. WE STRONGLY DESIRE THAT THE STADIUM REMAIN AN AMATUER FACILITY FOR CITY YOUTH.
