Skate park to get monitor

-A A +A
By Jennifer Garcia

In the coming weeks, the skate park in front of Mesa Public Library will get a couple of new additions.

A fence will be put up around the park to separate the skaters from pedestrians and make it safer for pedestrians going in and out of the library.

In addition, a skate park monitor will be hired to help enforce the rules of the park.

“I met with Max (Baker, the county administrator), Chief (Wayne) Torpy and a couple of folks about six to eight weeks ago,” said Community Services Director Stephani Johnson. “They thought because of the concerns the public has expressed about pedestrian access, they’d put up fencing to separate the skate park from pedestrians,”

The Parks and Recreation Department is working with Craig Wehner of LA Landscapes and More in hopes of getting the fencing installed within the next couple of weeks.

Johnson estimated that the fencing will cost about $2,000 and will be paid for out of the parks budget.

 She said the fencing will be the same type that is currently in place near the library.

“It’s metal and it’s open. It’s not wood or one of those fences with slats in it,” Johnson commented.
