Letter to the Editor: Vote Ferrera, Valentine, York for TDRPD
October 26, 2010
Itand#8217;s about time we expanded the most used facility within parks and rec and#8212; the skate park. Since and#8220;No Skateboardingand#8221; signs litter our town, we have forced all skaters to a small bit of concrete that we, the residents of Truckee, all pitched in to create. Now itand#8217;s crowded. While we might have 20-30 people at the park at any given time, it only handles about three skaters max, which makes it scary and a bit sketchy for kids to learn.
After discussing this issue, and researching the current status of the park, Rec and Parks District candidates Rich Valentine, Brent Ferrera and Kristin York have all expressed to me not only the importance of our skate park, but the understanding of a need for expansion.
I support these three as they promise to lend a strong ear to skaters so they continue to skate a great little park and hopefully a bigger one for the future.
