I am almost 14 years old. I have lived in Draper since I was 2.
When I was a child, I had a lot of space to ride my pony, but today I cannot ride anywhere without running into a dumb sign. I believe that you should think about the children who will never enjoy what I had as a child because of unwise decisions that were made during their childhood years.You say that you are worried about gangs, but you seem to refuse to admit that when you take away activities that are good and healthy, kids find other things to do, such as gangs. My other point is that when you put in big stores, freeways and malls, you attract gangs.
You really should think about the toddlers who are moving in, not to forget the hundreds of kids already here. You are only planning for today, but what about the children of tomorrow?
