THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, March 8, 2019 Page 11 FUNDING | FROM PAGE 7 Still, including an artificial turf fi eld in a project that hopes to draw the bulk of its funding from preservation money seems like a plan at odds with the spirit behind community preservation. “As members of this committee, as residents of this community, we need to do our homework on artificial turf, its questionable safety and the environmental eff ects of removing natural green space,” Sullivan told the council. Unlike natural grass, which absorbs pollution and prevents environmental damage, artifi cial turf contributes to environmental problems. Sullivan said roughly 1,800 trees would need to be planted to off set the carbon footprint of an artifi cial turf fi eld. Artificial turf can also raise surface temperature by as much as 40 degrees, she said. Although low-maintenance artificial turf has become a popular and cost-effective alternative for municipalities, Sullivan said the jury is still out on the safety of crumb rubber used as fi ll on the fields. “Ground-up tires contain a host of dangerous chemicals, which is the cause of continued research and studies on the safety of such fi elds,” Sullivan told city councillors. And what do the kids for whom the park is being renovated think about artifi cial turf vs. natural grass? Sullivan has been discussing the two options with her students, who agree that artifi cial turf would mean less mud and more play time on the field. But her students also said it hurts to fall on fake grass, artifi cial fi elds are hot and the crumb rubber meant to cushion and protect athletes fl ies everywhere and gets stuck on everyone. Sullivan said that when she explained the proposed plan for Roosevelt Park, 95 percent of her students were unhappy about the loss of the real grass even though it gets muddy. Sullivan invited city councillors to visit her fi fth-grade students to hear their opinions and concerns about the Roosevelt Park project. “My door is always open for your visit,” she said.
