[Update] The skateboard facility report has been withdrawn from the Park Board agenda for February 2, 2015. The board will not be hearing from speakers at this meeting, but rather at another meeting in the future.
Park Board was set to review a report that includes a proposal for a new Skateboard Facility in Mount Pleasant on Monday February 2nd.
The recommendation by staff was to construct a new facility in Jonathan Rogers Park (8th Avenue and Manitoba). Two options were considered by staff (Jonathan Rogers Park or Robson Park) and these were shown to the public at an Open House that was held on April 3, 2014.
Further details about the proposed changes are contained in the following Staff Report (to be updated):
Changes have also been proposed for the current Skateboard facility in Mount Pleasant Park (along 16th Avenue and close to Manitoba). The second recommendation in the report was to “Approve the conversion of the Mount Pleasant Park skateboarding facility for beginner skateboarding use.”
The report made no recommendations about the other skateboard park in Mount Pleasant in China Creek Park (East 10th Avenue, west of Clark).
