Boost your property value by supporting your parks

On March 18, I attended the Lan-Oak Park District meeting for the referendum. Those in attendance voiced concerns about raising their taxes. The Park District has not had a raise since 1949 for capital improvements; the average cost for taxpayers would be from $29 to $66 for a year, depending on your tax bill.

Consider the number of homes for sale and the person shopping for a new home. Would you buy a home in a village that has empty parks, no playground equipment, and shelters in need of repair? Home sales are based on your schools and your parks.

As a senior citizen, homeowner and business owner I encourage you to invest in your community. Boost your property values and vote yes on April 9 for Lansing parks.
