Keep Raynor Activity Center open for kids sign now


My name is Ikko Fushiki. My wife Maria and myself live in the
Birdland neighborhood of Sunnyvale ( south-east of Wolfe road and
bounded by El Camino, Lawrence expressway and Hwy 280)

Together, Maria and I run the child care center, "My Dream Academy"
hereafter referred to MDA, the past four years in the Raynor Activity
Center here in Birdland. We started with a dozen children and
now we have over 150 children at our center. We have outgrown our
buildings and we have requested the City of Sunnyvale to lease more
buildings to us for the past two years. We even offered to repair the
buildings at our own cost, but the City's response was to put "Not For Lease" signs
on the empty buildings. It is completely wrong and not a true statement on the
part of the city of Sunnyvale to represent the buildings as
under-utilized and not making any money.

We at MDA have proposed the City of Sunnyvale to make the Raynor
Activity Center an Educational Center for Sunnyvale and neighboring
residents. Although Birdland has a lot of children, we do not have many
enrichment classes in our neighborhood - for example, dance, martial
art, language, math, tutoring, SAT prep, fitness classes, etc. We welcome
other organizations to provide those enrichment programs. Small business
organizations in educational fields in Sunnyvale will be an excellent fit.
MDA used to have an After-School Program. Because of room shortage, we
had to close the program. If MDA acquires more classrooms, we
would be happy to re-open the After-School Program.

Sunnyvale Gymnastics Club in Birdland is doing a great job in producing
competitive girl gymnasts. We are proud of that. However, since the gym is
not used in the morning and early afternoon, we can use the gym for
the small children's tumbling classes or senior citizens' fitness
classes in those hours. Adding those enrichment and educational classes
in the new Raynor Activity Center will be a tremendous plus for
the Birdland neighbors. Those activities will then be available year around.

In order to support the concept of the Educational Center, MDA
offers to back up financial support for the retrofitting of the
buildings in order to bring them up to code if necessary. If the City
wants to sell the Raynor Activity Center, we and MDA want to be a buyer
to accomplish our concept of the Educational Center for the
neighboring residents.

We think it is a terrible mistake to convert this
facility to high density residence. The Educational Center will provide
a great benefit for our community - a benefit that is
supported whole-heartedly by our community. Please
sign this petition in support of MDA and our proposals to the city of Sunnyvale.
