Buy the former Energy Gym for the people of Johnstown in Navan

All the people of Johnstown especially its young people,are calling on Meath County Council to use all its powers to purchase the former Energy Gym on behalf of the local Community.

Why is this important?

The Johnstown estate is the biggest estate in Navan with nearly 3000 houses and 10,000 people and still growing. In actual fact it is bigger than most of the small towns like Kells and Dunshaughlin surrounding it. But bigger is not always better when it comes to facilities. Johnstown is the forgotten estate when it comes to facilities in Co Meath for its young and ever growing population. Most of the smaller towns and other estates in Navan around us have much better facilities, with a state of the art Community Centre's in the likes of Dunshaughlin.
For the Council to build a Community Centre from scratch in Johnstown, it would firstly take far to long for its long suffering population but would also cost to much. It makes much better financial sense for the Council to purchase the former Energy Gym for the benefit of everyone living in the community. This is only a once in a lifetime chance to turn a near derelict building and an eye sore based in the centre of the community into a badly needed Community Centre which all the residents of Johnstown can be proud of. We would ask that all Meath County Councillors from all parties and none would support this petition and urge the Council to act urgently to secure the Centre for the benefit of their constituents.

Reasons for signing

  • This gym was great for the children and parents in johnstown and now that the children of the community are growing older it would be somewhere for the teens to meet up and exercise at the same time.
  • We need a gym in Johnstown because it's not always easy to have to travel all the way to aura to use the gym and pool etc .
  • Badly needed for the community. Parents and kids need somewhere safe to go and take part in activities.
