The Skate Park is a go!
The final funding hurdle for the new skate park is now behind us! Our grant application to the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department was approved! This grant will cover 60% of the $542,256 costs with the city picking up the rest out of the parks fund.
I am excited about this project. Partnering with the YMCA to locate this park next to the Teen Center and the new high school will create compounding benefits for our kids, and the community.
