Proclaiming July as Recreation and Parks Month
WHEREAS, parks and recreation systems are dedicated to enhancing the wellness and quality of life for residents in communities around the state and nation through recreation programming, leisure activities and conservation efforts; and
WHEREAS, public parks, recreation activities and leisure experiences provide opportunities for young people to live, grow, and develop into contributing members of society, and create lifelines and continuous life experiences for older members of the community; and
WHEREAS, public parks, trails, open spaces and recreation activities generate opportunities for people to come together and experience community, and pay dividends to communities by attracting business and jobs, and increasing housing values; and
THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that I, Robert Taylor, Mayor of the City of Brentwood, along with my fellow Council members, do hereby proclaim the month of July as Recreation and Parks Month. We call upon public park and recreation supporters to join us in recognizing the importance of our nation’s public parks and recreation facilities and to support the places that bring our communities a higher quality of life, safer places to play and healthy alternatives through recreation programming for everyone.
WE DO ALSO RESOLVE, that during Recreation and Parks Month, all citizens enjoy what their community has to offer by taking part in their favorite sports, visiting the outdoors, spending time with family and friends, or just relaxing, as “the pursuit of happiness” is an inalienable right of all Americans.
