Skate Park design up for review

-A A +A
By Katy Korkos

The notion of a skate park for local youth has been bandied about for years, but this week the public will be able to see what the park might look like.The Parks Division will hold an open house to review the conceptual plans for an “Urban Plaza,” which is intended to provide not only challenging obstacles for skateboarders, but also spaces that could be used by the general public.The open house will be held from 5:30-8 p.m. Thursday in Council Chambers, 475 20th St.After many months of delay, while a vocal public weighed in on the proposed location in front of Mesa Public Library, the project is now on a fast track with the issuance of the design/build contract to California Skateparks after the county council’s Feb. 12 decision to go ahead with that location. “We’re hoping people will come and react, and give us input,” Community Services Director Stephani Johnson said. “Council made it very clear that the public should be given every opportunity to review the plans, to ensure that all of their concerns about safety and noise issues are addressed in the design.”Johnson said that she was really hoping to have as much community involvement as possible with the design of the skate park.
