Addressing the Need

The Copper Ridge neighborhood is home to over 400 houses and growing. In a sample poll conducted the summer of 2019, 95.1% of participants reported having children living in the home. Of those 61 participants, 125 children were reported and even more participants reported having grandchildren who visit the neighborhood. 88.4% of the participants reported having children aged 12 and under. With such a high concentration of young children in the community, closer, safe options for play must be made available.
