Library site wrong in every way

-A A +A
By The Staff

We have appealed the decision to put skateboarding on the front steps of Mesa Public Library (MPL). We make our case to the County Council (CC) at 7 p.m. Tuesday at the Community Building. We are appealing because we have legal standing: We live within 100 yards of the property line. We are also appealing on behalf of many people who expressed their disapproval of this site via signing a petition, personal communication and letters to the editor.

We understand the need for a place to skateboard. Skateboarders have been causing disruption and financial costs to merchants by ignoring the postings prohibiting skateboarding on downtown sidewalks. We support re-establishing a place to skateboard. As a matter of fact, as a county councilor, Morrie Pongratz worked hard to establish the previous site off Canyon Road.

In a demonstration of clout and influence the police chief selected the library site and bypassed the county’s Parks and Recreation Board and the Youth Advisory Board.
