    As a member of the Park and Rec committee in 2001 that approved this location, I am in favor of the proposition. I hope the Teen Center is eventually moved to Marine Park, as well.

    After 15 years the city now has the best opportunity to provide a skate board spot that meets all of the community concerns regarding cost, location and liability. By adopting resolution #16-0005 and giving skaters a safe place to practice and enjoy their sport we can demonstrate to our young people that city government does listen to their needs regarding a recreational activity that is banned in most parts of the city. Parks Make Life Better, including skate parks.

    As a 44 year Resident, not commissioner, our children have wanted and asked for a Skateboard Park for as long as I have lived here. The reason every City Council has used to not build one has been lack of finances. I support our children's wishes and strongly encourage this Council to accept the Staff report and use the available Grant Monies and finally build a Skateboard Park at the recommended Marine Park site.
