Construction is set to begin immediately on the Los Alamos Skate Park in front of Mesa Public Library now that appeals of the Planning and Zoning Commission’s approval of the project’s site plan have been denied.
Following more than three hours of hearings and discussion – and to the delight of a throng of young people in attendance – County Council voted 6-to-1 Tuesday night to uphold the P & Z’s decision.
Councilor Nona Bowman voted against the measure, saying she didn’t think research of other locations was adequate, the proposed size was misleading and the project didn’t meet requirements set forth in the Downtown Master Plan and County Comprehensive Plan.
Bowman, who voted in favor of the site last month, will decide by Aug. 13 whether to ask for discussion of a new site search to be placed on council’s agenda.
Councilor Chair Jim Hall and councilors Jim West and Mike Wheeler expressed dismay that she would contemplate resurrecting the site search issue.
“I urge Councilor Bowman to carefully consider her decision because I believe it will greatly increase the very problem we are trying to solve,” Hall said.
