Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Nearly 90 people signed a petition asking the Park Board not to sell Ed Clapp Park to the school district.

The school district hopes to build a new two-story elementary school on what is currently the park.

Homeowners nearby don't want to lose the green space, and worry about the traffic issues it will bring to the neighborhood.

They presented their petition to the Park Board today.

Liz Mathison: “Our hope is they reconsider selling it to the school district and keep it green space, and keep it the park it was intended to be.”

The public will have a chance to address their concerns at a meeting on Nov. 6.
