Propose a Park Improvement
In this project, you will identify a park near you in need of improvement, a local representative with an incentive to help, and make a proposal for improvement to send to that representative. This will demonstrate political thinking. In 300-500 words address a letter to your local official identifying the park by name, the improvements you think should be made, and why you think it is worth the resources of your local government compared to other projects they might be considering. I recommend that you create your letter in a word processor, then cut and paste it in your response to this assignment. This will be graded by rubric. It helps students meet course goal 4, you will be able to discuss California state and local government, how they relate to the national government, and how those relationships affect you as a California resident.
