The long-awaited plans for a community skate park are inching closer to their finality, after significant progress was made during Thursday’s open house to review the park’s conceptual design.Representatives from California Skateparks Inc., the design firm awarded the contract to build the park, were on hand to present the community with a working sketch of the park’s design, as well as to address concerns from local skateboarders and non-skaters. About 75 community members attended the meeting.“We want to move from a 30-percent planning phase to a 60-percent planning phase,” said Parks Division Manager Richard McIntyre during his opening statements. “I’m confident we can do that.”The controversial project, which has recently faced opposition from nearby residents, was presented to the public to discuss modifications to the existing design. McIntyre emphasized there would be no discussion of the park’s future location, adjacent to the Mesa Public Library – a decision finalized last June.“We had a little hiccup but the project seems to be back on track,” said County Councilor Ken Milder.
