Tell the City of Jacksonville not to neglect the soccer fields at Ed Austin Regional Park
Jacksonville residents pay taxes to the city and deserve the right to have access to safe and well maintained parks and athletic facilities. The soccer fields at Ed Austin Regional Park have been neglected and have fallen into such disrepair as they have become unsafe for soccer players and the general public at large
The current lesee at the park and the city parks maintenance department have shown little interest in maintaining the fields at reasonable levels and the fields continue to deteriorate to the point that the safety of anyone using the fields is at risk.
Vandalism and graffiti at the park have become common place as the park continues to fall into disrepair. If this is allowed to continue, the park will continue to attract more crime to the area.
Ed Austin Regional Park is only one of a handful of green spaces left in the Arlington/East Arlington area... it can be a centerpiece of community involvement if it is properly maintained and further developed.
AFC (Arlington Futbol Club) is seeking a direct lease with the city in an effort to attract more development to the park to maintain and enhance the fields through the use of corporate sponsorships and soccer specific grants in aid.
Please show your support of AFC and the enhancement and development of the Ed Austin Regional Park.
