Much like transportation, green space has become a necessity in the city. As more families move into SSL, that need for more green space is being requested. Families wish to embrace nature even within city limits. While we are not far from many recreation areas, the need to have them closer to home is far more important. We can reduce our carbon footprint, without having the need to travel or use our vehicles to get to these locations. I believe we as city, can make this happen.
