1961-2011. 50 years. That's how long the Minnesota Vikings have been in the Twin Cities. 2016. 5 years from now. The year the Vikings will be moved to Los Angelos is we don't build a new stadium.
The most crucial elements affecting local residents are lights and sound from stadium use. Although decibel and footcandle limitations are necessary, we recognize that the single most effective way to minimize all sound and light impact is to limit the number, intensity, and duration of events at the stadium.
In addition, we strongly suggest a trial period for this ordinance; there is no precedent for the number of events on the field next year, and the sound and lighting systems are an unknown quantity.
Stadium conditional usage should be formally reviewed and adjusted by stakeholder input after a year’s worth of experience.
WE WISH FOR YOU TO APPROVE OUR REQUEST TO CHANGE THE NAME OF THE WILSON TIGER STADIUM TO HORACE FLEMING STADIUM UPON OPENING OF THE NEW CAMPUS OF WOODROW WILSON IN THE FALL OF 2011.
WE HOPE TO HAVE THIS SET IN STONE BY HAVING COACH FLEMING’S NAME SOMEWHERE RECOGNIZABLE IN THE STADIUM. ME AND MY PEERS FEEL THAT COACH FLEMING'S 30 PLUS YEARS AS A COACH, TEACHER, COUNSELOR, A FATHER FIGURE TO MANY, AND PLENTY OTHER TITLES MAKE IT NECESSARY FOR HIS ACTIONS TO BE RECOGNIZED.
WE FEEL THAT THIS WOULD BE THE BEST WAY AS GROUP TO SHOW OUR GRATITUDE AND APPRECIATION. THERE IS TOO MUCH TO PUT INTO WORDS HERE.
P.A.R.C. is a group of residents living near Yankee Stadium, in the Bronx N.Y., who are petitioning the Bronx Borough President, Ruben Diaz Jr. and Mayor Bloomberg to issue residential parking permits to certified local residents. These parking permits would allow residents within a 10 block radius of Yankeee Stadium to have the exclusive right to park within this area on home game days and other events held at Yankee Stadium. Yankee fans are welcome to park in the numerous Yankee parking lots or father away from the stadium.
As a result, residents in the area would park worry free and the city would create more revenue from the parking lots they already have in the area. Thus, with residential parking permits residents can also enjoy Yankee home games and other events held at Yankee Stadium, and the city can get a greater return on their investment.
Residents should not have to worry about finding parking after coming home tired from a long day of work or school. Residents should not have to spend a hour or more looking for parking where they live. Residents should not have to sacrifice their quality of life for Yankee home games, or any other Yankee Stadium event.
The Olympic Installation Board wants to dump another $300 Million to put in a new roof on the Olympic Stadium.
This is a waste of citizen's tax dollars and it should be stopped.
The ticats are saying NO to redevelopment at the Rheem site aka a brownfield, due to the fact that the Pan Am stadium is supposed to be about leaving a legacy, i believe it is important for it to be built there. it would signify another step that has been taken to relcaim our waterfront from industrialization.
There are many people who will look at rheem and fail to see what it can become, therefore leaving the site to decay further. ... However, there are people who have a vision, just like when harbourfront park started to get cleaned up, people scoffed at the idea of the land being transformed into a beautiful park where families goto fish, walk, jog, rollerblade etc. Look at that park today, it is thriving, 10's of thousands of people visit it yearly and imagine if the naysayers won and that park was not reclaimed.
Where would those families go? Where would that civic pride disappear to?for our sake i hope we do not let this opportunity slip through our fingers; the ticats are suggesting 3 alternative sites for the stadium: aldershot (not even hamilton), chedoke park (NEC would not allow burlington to build a smaller stadium, why would they allow a large one?) and right by the QEW/red hill express-way (imagine how great it would be to be sitting in a seat when one of the steel mills has another burp of carbon soot, or breathing all the exhaust from cars on the hwy) when all is said and done, the best location for the city of hamilton is the rheem site!
We The People of Hamilton and Tigercats Fans Do not support the Current new Stadium location
We Support Bob Young and his Plan for a 90-day freeze to look at other sites
Going before the Ben Hill County Board of Commissioners on April 6, 2010, is the 2011 SPLOST Referendum.
The Fitzgerald City Council voted unanimously in favor of the final proposal in February 2010, meeting.
We ask that the City Council to reconsider allocating $600,000 toward synthetic turf.
We are continuing to collect signatures as the referendum is planned to appear before the County Commissioners on April 6, 2010.
Wimbledon Speedway was founded in 1928 and have raced at Wimbledon Stadium, Plough Lane between 1928 and 1991 and again from 2002, until the stadium owners refused to extend our tenancy at the end of 2005.
The club has won multiple League Championships, World Individual Titles and many other domestic trophies, and are the most successful professional team sports club in the borough.
After five years away from the track, our efforts are now concentrated on bringing the club back to a competitive existence within its spiritual home.
For this we simply require the support of the local council, London Borough of Merton.
Please sign the petition, completing all the required fields, to show your support for the return of the Wimbledon 'Dons' Speedway Club.
In two weeks time the FA will decide on which cities it will put forward with its bid to host the World Cup in 2018. The South is not represented! After Pompey pulled out it is left to SOUTHAMPTON to represent the South (Milton Keynes is hardly the south) as a host city for England's 2018 World Cup bid.
We weren't on the original list due to Southampton FC's financial woes in the summer but now we're set to step up and be counted.
The FA simply has to allow the city to bid. We have the facilities, both in footballing terms and the ability to welcome the world's football fans to our great city.
Nottingham City Council plan to develop housing and a Stadium on Rushcliffe green belt land. Media releases suggest plans for 3500 - 4500 houses and a Stadium. These plans were released to local media on 07/09/09 without any prior consultation with local residents.
An independent survey of the area by Tribal Solutions (partly funded by Nottingham City Council) had already identified the area as unsuitable for development. The proposed location is designated green belt and contravenes current planning guidelines (Planning Policy Guidance 2 Green Belt). It is also on a River Trent floodplain so contravenes Flood Planning Policy Statement 25 Development & Flood Risk.
Furthermore the scale of the development cannot be supported by the local infrastructure.
With a new stadium being planned to be built for Tottenham Hotspur, I think we should keep the fans pitch side.
The current stadium has a fantastic atmosphere and lets the fans be more involved with the game, compared to stadiums with no pitch side fans.
If we don't allow fans pitch side, I think we would lose out atmosphere.
The Tennessee Titans, Nashville Predators, and Nashville Sounds all currently receive millions of dollars of tax generated funding to operate each year. Each of the sports facilities (LP Field, The Sommet Center, and Greer Stadium) used by these teams operate at a loss each year. These sports facilities mirror a national trend of sporting facilities to operate at a loss. While some are calling for taxpayer funding to build a new stadium, it is time to realize the insanity of funding sports facilities with tax dollars.
The Heartland Institute estimates professional sports facilities cost taxpayers some $500 million a year. A typical sports facility costs local taxpayers more than $10 million a year. According to The Brookings Institution, a new sports facility has an extremely small (perhaps even negative) effect on overall economic activity and employment. No recent facility appears to have earned anything approaching a reasonable return on investment. No recent facility has been self-financing in terms of its impact on net tax revenues.
In the long run, taxes imposed on businesses in or near the stadium will actually decrease business in those areas and thus decrease revenues both in the immediate area near the sports facility and throughout the rest of the community.
It is our goal to help persuade Mayor Karl Dean and the local Nashville Government to abandon funding facilities like a new Nashville Sounds Stadium with tax money. We understand the reality that no mater how wonderful a team is, it simply will never make economic sense to subsidies the team or a new stadium for the team with taxpayer funds.
DHS Lights Information Committe:
The DHS Lights Information Committee is providing the facts about plans currently
under consideration by the Board of Education to place lights on the Stadium Field at Darien High School.
The Campaign for Sustainable Harlington (CaSH) is an action group made up of Harlington residents to oppose proposals to build a new 25,000 seat stadium for Luton Town Football Club and a substantial 200 acre commercial distribution development - one and quarter times the size of Harlington itself.
Things you should know:
· This is a commercial bid for precious greenbelt land, dressed up as a new home for the local football team with unnecessary and unwanted ‘community’ facilities.
· This development is larger than Harlington itself; it and its activities will swamp the village.
· Football and other stadium traffic might avoid the motorway and public transport and come through Harlington.
· Football fans won’t pay parking prices at the stadium; they will park in your road. Futhermore, only 1,250 parking places are planned for a 25,000 seat stadium.
· An estimated 3,000 lorries a day could drive in and out of the warehousing development 24/7.
· Lorries will cut through the village especially when traffic problems occur on the M1
· On match days or concert days, you will have to queue to get into and out of your village.
· The value of your property will go down and you will find it difficult to sell should you wish to move.
· You will be able to hear football crowds and concert crowds - weekends and week days.
· You will see an increase in anti-social behaviour in the village.
· You will be able to see the 100 ft hotel tower from many points in the village, including from your homes.
· 98% of Harlington residents have said they will not use the community facilities on offer
· Only 12% of the UK is now greenbelt. It is increasingly being lost to developers for commercial gain.
· LTFC struggle to get 7,000 fans to a match. If the stadium at J12 goes ahead, it needs to attract 25,000. The club is losing over £2m a year; it’s been relegated and is being investigated by the FA.
Wasn't it great when you used to be able to stand at football matches...
Unfortunately, that is no longer allowed, and we want to try and get safe, secure standing areas re-introduced into stadiums. It adds to a great atmosphere and we think will make it a better spectacle.
After an embarrassingly high number of empty seats in the recent Concert for Diana and Live Earth at Wembley Stadium, I believe that the tickets should be easier to obtain, so that the stadium is full every time.
The stadium taskforce has submitted its report to the WA State Government, now it's time for action!!!
East Perth or Kitchener Park? Whichever one it is, let's get the government to start construction TODAY!
We hereby urge Scarborough Borough Council to lift the covenant on the McCain Stadium and allow Scarborough Football Club to re-locate to its chosen site at Eastfield.
We believe this to be the only way for the club to survive and that this move will be of benefit to the local community.
Please make sure you include your name. Signatures with no name can't be counted.
The current conditions in which Hammer and Discus throwers are expected to throw at Santry Stadium Dublin are unsafe for both the throws competitiors and the competitors on the track.
The "new" circle is the result of shody workmanship and it is highly unfair to ask athletes to throw in such dangrous conditions. Athletes have commented that they feel they are "signing a death warrent every time you went into it."
As well as it being unfair to ask athletes to throw from such conditions, it is even more unfair to ask them to throw in a manner that will be safe to track competitors. Throwers have complained about the difficulties in keeping control of the emplements they are throwing due to the conditions and unless this is rectified it WILL lead too an injury, either to a thrower or someone on the track.
The angle at which the cage is now set up also means that, on top of the highly dangrous and unpredictable conditions of the circle, it is highly possible for a 16lb hammer to land on the track. The AAI attempted to rectify this by abruptly changeing the direction of the sector line at 60m. This is something that a wayward hammer will not take into consideration when it is heading towards the track. And the AAI does not want to know what kind of damage a 16lb ball traveling at that speed can do to a track! Unless these conditions are taken into consideration, I can see the closeing of lanes due to damage as well as injury to athletes.
There has been outcry by members of the throwing community since the "new" circle was put down and various demands for the establishment of petitions. As well as being extremly angry at the conditions we are expected to perform in we do not wish to see clamp downs on our events due to somebody on the track being injured.
Irish Throwers have just as much a right to compete in safety as do the other athletes. It is the duty of the AAI to provide safe conditions for the athletes of this country to take part in. The conditions at Santry are safe for neither thrower nor athletes useing the track.
We respectfully ask that the circle be fixed or that the Irish Championships and other events due to be held at Santry be moved to a new location which provides proper and safe conditions for holding a competition.

FK Velez Mostar
Visokom predstavniku u BiH
Cijenjeni gospodine Schwarz - Schilling
Fudbalski klub Vele Mostar je jedan od najstarijih klubova na podruèju june Evrope. Dugogodinji je uèesnik meðunarodnih fudbalskih klupskih natjecanja. Njegove boje su branili nogometai, koji su kasnije igrali za najpoznatije evropske klubove.
Sa poèetkom rata u BiH 1992.godine, FK Vele je protjeran sa svoga stadiona i uskraæeno mu je pravo koje meðunarodna zajednica garantira svim graðanima BiH - povratak na svoje ognjite.
Veæ 14 godina FK Vele nastupa na neuslovnom stadionu i samo uz veliku ljubav svojih navijaèa i prijatelja uspio je opstati kao klub i nalazi se pred povratkom u fudbalsku ligu najboljih klubova BiH.
FK Vele je tokom svoje istorije bio i ostao klub svih graðana svoga grada i ire, u njemu su igrali i igraju predstavnici sva tri naroda u BiH.
Cijenjeni gospodine Visoki predstavnièe,
svojim potpisom dole molim Vas da iskoristite svoj autoritet i pravo funkcije koju obavljate i donesete, èim prije, odluku sa zakonskom snagom kojom æete omoguæiti FK Vele Mostar ostvarenje njegovog prava na trenutni povratak na Stadion pod Bijelim brijegom u Mostaru...
Sehr geehrter Herr Schwarz-Schilling!
Fußballklub Velez gehört zu den ältesten Fußballvereinen Südosteuropas und hat an vielen internationalen Wettbewerben teilgenommen. In seiner Vereinsfarbe rot spielten die Spieler, die später auch für berühmtesten Vereine Europas angetreten sind.
Mit dem Kriegsbeginn in Bosnien-Herzegowina 1992. wurde Velez von seinem Fußballstadion vertrieben. Nach dem Krieg wurde ihm das Recht zurückzukehren, das allen Bürgern Bosniens zusteht und von Internationalen Gemeinschaft garantiert wird, entzogen.
Seit 14 Jahren arbeitet das Team unter schwierigsten Bedienungen und nur Dank Hilfe von Fans und Freunden ist er als Verein erhalten geblieben und befindet sich auf dem Weg in die höchste Spielklasse, Premier League Bosniens.
FK Velez ist durch seine Geschichte immer ein Klub aller Bürger Mostars gewesen und in ihm haben immer die Vertreter aller drei Volksgruppen Bosniens gespielt und noch immer spielen.
Hochgeschätzter Herr Hoher Repräsentant,
mit meiner Unterschrift weiter unten, bitte ich Sie höflichst Ihre Autorität und Rechte, die Ihre Funktion mit sich bringt, zu nutzen und die gesetzliche Grundlage zu schaffen, die es dem FK Velez ermöglichen soll endlich zu seinem Recht zu kommen um schnellstmöglich in sein Stadion Bijeli Brijeg" zurückzukehren.
Danke in voraus
Mit freundlichen Grüßen
Dear Mr. Schwarz Schilling.
This is a plee of Bosnian football fans in Bosnia & Herzeggovina and worldwide. It regards the "Velez" - Football Club of Mostar.
F.C. "Velez" is one of the oldest football clubs in the southern regions of Europe. It has been, contestant of many international championships trougout its rich history. Its colors were representet by footballers who were, later, members of most famous clubs in Europe.
At the begining of the war in Bosnia and Herzeggovina in 1992, F.C. "Velez" was expelled from its own stadium and is being denied return to its own playground. This is a very sad fact since U.N. is granting the right of return to homes to all people in bosnia.
This right should apply to F.C. "Velez" also, - the team which has been forced to train and play at dire conditions of its present stadium and facilities. The club has been able to survive today only by the help of its friends and fans who are realy fond of their club.
F.C. "Velez" has allways been and allways wil be represented by the players from all Bosnian nationalities. It has allways been and it wil allways be pride of the city of Mostar.
So, dear Mr. Schilling we hope that you can use your respected authority and grant the rightfull return of "Velez Stadium" to its club, fans and its people.
Sports-lovers of Bosnia and Herzegovina and worldwide.

This is a Petition to request for action on the removal of seating facilities for Rock & Pop concerts (S'pore Indoor Stadium).
I attended my very first rock concert in my teenage years. In my opinion, it was one of the best concerts that ever took place in S'pore. The energy exuded by the 1000+ fans were truly an amazing sight. It was a METALLICA Concert & at that time, they were one of the hottest Metal Bands around (& they still are!!).
Although I absolutely enjoyed the unforgettable event... but what disappointed me utterly was the inclusion of seating facilities. I was extremely surprised (or rather, Shocked!) that there actually were seats for a Rock concert. What a Travesty it was.
The seats were absolutely redundant & a major obstacle for the fans to have a great time. For Goodness sake... this is a ROCK Concert. Nobody will ever seat down during a Rock Concert.
I really do not comprehend the reason for placing seats in the main arena. I did not pay $150 to seat down at concert events. Apparently, everybody were not utilising the seats at all.
The fans were either standing or using the seats as standing-stools (including myself & my friends).
In 2001, I attended the COLDPLAY/TRAVIS Concert. The concert was excellent, but the seats (again!) were a major disappointment. Then there were also ushers demanding fans to take their seats. This is unacceptable as those at the rear will not be able to see their favourite band perform because the fans in the front were standing up & obstructing the view.
Hence, those fans behind have to stand on the seats to enjoy the concert & get their money's worth. The concert tickets cost over a $100 each & i bought 4 tickets for my friends so we would have a enjoyable night.
However, we were deprived of having good clean fun.
I understand the need to have seating facilities for shows/films, theatrical performances & plays as i do attend these events as well. (eg. Cirque du Soleil, Cabarets, etc )
Nowadays whenever there are any concerts (like the upcoming Franz Ferdinand & OASIS concert), i would think twice about spending money to attend the event where i have to mandatorily take a seat to enjoy the concert.
I'm very sure many others out there would share my exact sentiments.
Thus, I write this petition to appeal to the authorities & organisers to remove the seating facilities for all Rock/Pop Concerts in the future.
I always believe this action will undoubtedly please all fans & concert go-ers.
Furthermore, more eager fans would not hesitate to buy tickets to see their favourite artistes/bands perform.
This will definitely be a win-win situation.
The cost of setup would be lower as there will be significantly less maintenance of the seats & manpower to arrange the seats prior to the event.
Please do your part & sign the petition to put a halt to all these unreasonable decisions to place seats in the arena.
Kindly send this petition to all your friends & relatives who believe in this cause as well.
On completion of the signature inputs, this petition will be sent to all relevent authorities pertaining to concert events organisation. (Ministry of Information & The Arts, SISTIC, etc). Thank you very much for your kind & generous support.

We havent had an ASG in NY since the 60's for god sake!
Gwynedd Council will shortly be considering a planning application for an all-seater stadium with capacity for 3000 spectators to be built at the Nantporth site, Holyhead Road, Bangor (pictured).
This is a great opportunity not just for the City of Bangor, but for the whole of North West Wales.
We are asking you to join us in calling for Gwynedd Council to approve this application.
There is no handicap parking on the west side of the Shawnee Mission South stadium which makes the stadium hard to access.
The Youth of Front Royal and Warren County need the Board of Supervisors to have the County of Warren pay the annual light bill charged by the County for the use of Bing Crosby Stadium and surrounding practice fields. Rising expenses in football equipment has financially strapped the league which has been a staple of this comunity for almost 50 years.
The Front Royal Midget Football Leaque receives NO co-sponsoring funds or help from the Waren County Parks and Recreation Dept. Expenses can be as much as $30,000 per year for field fees, lights, gaming policing, insurance, new equipment and for old equipment to be refurbished.
As a native of Del Rio, Tx. and a Silver Medalist in the Olympics, having ended a 50+ year medal drought for the United States in bobsledding. Not to mention a great role model for the youth of today, Todd is more than deserving of such an honor.
A soccer team wants to build a giant stadium and associated structures in country land next to a new village. The guy who owns the soccer team also built most of the homes in the village. But when he was selling the homes he didn't tell any of the owners he was going build a soccer stadium when he was done.
The stadium would attract crowds of up to 30,000 in an area surrounded by country lanes. There are no plans to put in any new roads. 389 residents of Aberdeen objected to the Scottish Government's plan to waive the regulations for building in country land. The Government dismissed the objections, saying they were "incompetent." Then 1459 residents of Aberdeen lodged objections with their planning authority and they are now worried that these will also be dismissed.
32 grounds for objection were submitted by 1459 residents. These included :
1) Traffic gridlock
2) No railway link
3) Noise pollution
4) Light pollution
5) The landscape will be ruined
6) Urbanisation of country land
7) A precedent will be created for more developments
8) A better site exists in industrial land next to a highway and a railway line.
We need help to avoid getting rail roaded by the city and national Governments.
Aberdeen Football Club have proposed the construction of a new multi-purpose sports & Leisure stadium on the outskirts of Aberdeen City. A small band of residents 1.5 miles from the site on the other side of a dual carriageway have launched a very vocal protest whilst not providing any real grounds for their objections.
Pittodrie is not deemed economical for re-development and other sites have astronomical price tags on them.
As you will be aware of the recent events surrounding the use of Boundary Park, an online petition is now set up so that you can support ORLFC's cause to play there.
Oldham RLFC is a vital sporting organisation to the town of Oldham. Since the tragic demise of our spiritual home, Watersheddings, and then the sad death of our beloved Oldham Bears, the reformed ORLFC needs to build on the success of last season and needs a permanent base to play their games.
