As a mother of a teenager, I think a skatepark would be a great addition to the area. I see a lot of teenagers walking arround town and in the mall having nothing to do but cause mischief.

If they had somewhere to go with somekind of activity to keep them busy, and maybe give the kids some kind of responsiblity in the upkeep, it would give them a sense of pride in keeping the project going!

I just moved here from a small town, where it was the same thing... NOTHING for the youth to do!

PLEASE think hard about this, The kids need something to!!
