To the editor:

My position on Sustainable Playland Inc. (SPI) -- The plan has many positive features but I am completely against the 95,000 sq ft field house and I do not support the plan as it currently stands. I do not agree that having such a large structure adjacent to a residential neighborhood in Rye is beneficial in any way to the residents of Rye.

A Playland parking lot car space inventory was undertaken to assess the total lost spaces which will be removed if the two artificial regulation soccer fields and 95,000 sq. ft. Sports Field House are built.

The count was factored on Sustainable Playland's Field Zone Project orientation rendering.

The total number is 939 car parking (handicap and regular) spaces lost; that exceeds Rye's Central Business district parking lot capacity.

Assume the average visiting car occupancy is two people, 1,878 people will be looking to park outside the Park's borders if the remaining large lot is at capacity.

Jason Mehler,

Independent candidate for Rye City Council
