Last week, this blog noted that the Rob Dyrdek Foundation has donated $50,000 to design and build a skate park in the City of Phoenix. At the time, Phoenix Vice Mayor Michael Nowakowski stated:
I’m thrilled to help bring a world-class skate course to my district. Residents have voiced concerns for additional recreational activities where they live and despite an economic downturn and budget cuts, we’re still able to create this opportunity for youth and families.
One of the sites that is seriously being considered is Hance Park. It is downtown, pedestrian-friendly, accessible by numerous forms of public transit and near several schools and active neighborhoods.
City of Phoenix staff are looking for people express their opinions to the Parks Board at their next meeting, this Wednesday, September 1st, at 10AM. The meeting will be held in the Parks Conference Room on the 16th floor of City Hall, 200 W. Washington.
For further information on the meeting, please call Marcia Wilson, Secretary, Parks and Recreation Department at 602-262-4993.
If you can not attend the meeting, you can share you opinion by sending an email to email@example.com and your respective city council member.
