During a Parks and Recreation Board meeting Thursday night, Board member Curtis Schultz suggested that the Parks and Recreation Department should give the County Council clarity on what they should put on the Nov. 4 ballot regarding the location of the skate park.
Board Member Megan Tripp agreed, by saying, “We’re failing the skaters if the issue falls off the ballot. We need something more concrete than a yes or no question to the downtown location.”
With that said, Board Chair Stephen Boerigter moved that the board recommend to Council that immediate construction of the skate park should be built somewhere at Ashley Pond, but parenthetically not at the library.
The motion was seconded by Shultz and then voted on, 4-1, with board member Kristy Keane opposing the motion.
In recent weeks, there has been some debate over the proposed location of the skate park. The youth want the location to be downtown, while some Los Alamos residents oppose the location near the library.
On Feb. 10 The Fuller Lodge Historic Districts Advisory Board voted 4-1 against the skate park site.
