North Tahoe skate park needs approved site

Preliminary plans for a skate park in the North Tahoe Regional Park are just about wrapped up, but the North Tahoe Public Utility District needs to approve a location within the park to keep the project’s momentum rolling.

Before the League to Skate Lake Tahoe dives into massive fundraising efforts, a specific site for the project needs to be secured.

But the district’s board of directors weren’t sold on the proposed site brought before them at their meeting last week by the League to Skate Lake Tahoe, a certified nonprofit solely created to build a skate park in the North Tahoe area.

“It’s imperative that we kind of agree on a site,” said Mick Nicklin, the skate park’s engineer, at the meeting. “So that we can go ahead on our funding.”

The league wishes to build a 63,000-square-foot skate park, including parking, in the upper portion of the Regional Park, in between the soccer field and the bike path.
