I want to start a petition to stop a radio controlled car race track from coming to a park that I live close to. A lot of the neighbors are unhappy about the possibility of this track being built in our neighborhood.
I don't know much about petitions so I just need some advice and information before I start one. My first question is how many signatures would I need in order for the petition to be taken seriously? Would I just need signatures from the people/residents that live in this neighborhood or could I also get signatures from other city residents that don't live close by this park? Do the people that sign the petition have to be registered voters? Would I need permission from the city to do this?
