Lack of bids stalls skate park; may open in fall

Plans for the Truckee Donner and Recreation District’s skate park have slowed, but, a spokesperson said, are picking up again.

TDRPD’s Chuck Halladay said the deadline for the proposed park came and went two weeks ago without a single bid.

“We did some soul searching and came up with five bids,” Halladay said.

He said bids have come from Los Angeles, Monterey and as far away as Alaska. He said the one requirement of all bidders is that they have completed at least one skate park in the past.

He said the district will review the bids at this month’s board meeting to finalize the plans.

The lack of early bids has set back the estimated completion date from July 4 to this fall.

“We’re not even dealing in months now, just seasons,” Halladay said.

The park was designed by Wormholdt Construction, a California firm well-known in the skate park industry. Public input was sought and alterations were made to the design.

Halladay said he was disappointed but added, “the good news is we’ve got some bids.”
