More thought is certainly needed for the location(s) of a skateboard park. I do not think adjacent to the library, museum and police-municipal-judicial complex is the right location - or even the best location.
Integrating with an existing recreation area, open park or park-like space makes better sense. If another skateboard facility is needed (not part of Urban Park), then a good candidate is the open area between Canyon Road and Central (currently grass), immediately east of the old school (rented to the lab).
With the additional tens of millions of dollars required for the Municipal-Judicial-Police complex, it seems appropriate to defer any further action on the skateboard park, other than a reanalysis of location, until a competent solution to the Municipal-Judicial-Police complex occurs.
By the way, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to expect significantly less gross receipts tax county income from the lab from 2008 onward and a lower number of lab employees!
