County Meeting Update

About 10 people showed up in support of the skatepark. Although our funding request was not on the agenda, we were allowed to speak. Several of us spoke on behalf of the skatepark, and we were even acknowledged for our work and dedication thus far. It remains to be seen if we will receive any funding.

You can and still need to contact your county commissioners and vocalize your support! Highlight the items listed below in your letters!

– Ours is a one-time request; we will not come back and ask for
more money.
– There is a real need for this facility.
– Skateboarding is safe.
– Volunteers have done a tremendous amount of work to date.

Attention all skaters, supporters, parents, business owners, etc….

We need you to attend the county budget hearing this Friday, June 24th at 9:30 am. The hearing will be held at 124 Bull Street, 2nd floor. To date, all funds have been raised through grants, fundraisers, and private donations. In addition to thanking the commissioners for providing the location at Lake Mayer, we will be asking for a one time allocation from the county to help complete the park. Please come to show your support. If you’re unable to attend, calls and emails of support to the county commissioners would be greatly appreciated.
