Calling all Site Grading Contractors. If you know of a contractor or are a contractor with site grading/earth moving experience and would like to receive a Request for Proposal for the upcoming site work at the skatepark, then send us an email at email@example.com. Thanks everyone!!
Plans approved!! Next step is selecting a contractor for the site grading, then a pre-construction meeting with the city/county, then ground breaking!! Still a lot of work to do before we can break ground, but we are working diligently toward breaking ground this year. Thanks for all the support and for sticking with us!! Stay tuned!!!
Hey guys and gals

We are still waiting on final approval of the plans from the city of Savannah. Stay tuned.
We are still working with the city of Savannah on acquiring permits. Since every city department was able to review the plans, there are quite a few comments to address. Luckily, we have a great engineer working diligently on that. We hope to get these plans resubmitted in the next couple of weeks. We are working very hard on this project, and things like this do not happen overnight (as much as we would like them to). We will keep you posted on updates, and thank you for the continued support.
We submitted the plans to the City of Savannah earlier this week for permitting!! One step closer to breaking ground!!
Over 15 local kids (ages 4-12) participated in a 2 day art camp and created their own art on skateboards. These boards will hang from December 3rd – December 30th at Foxy Loxy Print Gallery and Cafe (1919 Bull Street, Savannah, GA 31401). The boards will be up for silent auction for the whole month, and we will have an opening reception on December 7th from 6-9 pm. Come out and support these kids and the skatepark!
Would your child like to be involved with a fundraiser for the skatepark?
We are looking for kids from 4-12 years of age.
We are going to be having an art camp at Form (1801 Habersham Street, Savannah, GA 31401) on November 10th & 11th from 9am-1pm.
We will be providing the skateboards, art supplies and instructors (SCAD professors, students, local artists).
The boards will then hang in Foxy Loxy Cafe the whole month of December and be silent auctioned off during that time.
The cost for the camp will be $50 and boards will be auctioned off starting at $25. All proceeds will go to the skatepark effort.
Please feel free to contact us if you want to be involved.
