Petition Presented to the WSFCS Board of Education on August 17, 2012
To not build the proposed 4,500 seat stadium on school property at Hanes Park
We, the citizens of Winston-Salem and Forsyth County petition the WSFCS Board of Education to not build the privately funded stadium adjacent to Hanes Park. The controversial proposal will cause harm to Hanes Park, to surrounding neighborhoods and to emergency vehicle routes. The School Board’s construction of a new gym, relocation of school bus and car drop-offs and operation of the stadium will incur unnecessary and significant costs to WSFCS and therefore to us as taxpayers. These funds are better spent on academic affairs and on upkeep and operation of existing athletic facilities.
Respectfully submitted on August 17, 2012
