My Hope - Skateboard Park Small Town, PA, USA

Skateboarding - In Another Town
Tyler (my grandson) on His Skateboard
Many of the youth in our small town participate in skateboarding. However, it is illegal to skateboard in our community. The kids have to travel either 12 miles or 23 miles to a skate board park. I am on our small community's borough council. One of my goals is to develop a skate park in our community. There are now several interested adults and youth, along with the backing of the Parks and Recreation Committee (on which I am a member), commencing on this worthwhile project. We know that we have a tough road ahead of us which will involve grant writing, fund raisers a lot of hard work.
I think that many of our town's residents do not see skate boarding as a sport that requires skill. Some of the wealthier school districts have actually incorporated skate boarding into their curriculum. I understand that this is a difficult time to be a kid especially in today's world. I really think that some of our residents forget what it is like to be young.
As part of this skate park endeavor, 800 surveys were distributed in the junior-senior high school to learn the level of interest, location, etc. for a park. As a result, I am entering the information from the surveys into a data base and compiling a report to present at our next borough council meeting.
Alas, I need to concentrate on the survey and report and will not be posting again until Monday. If any of you have had any experience with endeavors such as this, please share your experiences with me.
I hope that you all have a good weekend.
Sweetie

Good luck with your project. I totally agree that our young people needs a place to use that is good entertainment for them. It is exercise and keeps them from getting into the trouble zone. :)

Hugs,
Chris

Our city council finally decided to approve a skate boarding park a couple of years ago. So many kids are into that these days and with it being illegal to use on our streets, it was worth the expense to build a park for them. I do hope you get the approval you need!! xoxo

Good luck, I hope you win this one. Your Grandson looks like a little pro.

Hi Sweetie, your grandson *does* look like a pro! I would probably kill myself trying. LOL!!!! My camera is a Cannon Power Shot SD750It has proven to be a pretty good little camera. My husband bought it for me. He said it was on sale from 199.00 to 129.00. I think it may still be that price. Deb

Good luck with the skateboard park. Our town has one and so does the town we lived in before we moved here. The one here gets lots of use.

Ruthie said...

Good job. Keep up the great work.

Hi Sweetie,
Thank you so much for your warm comment it really means a lot to me,knowing we will meet again is a huge cushion for me.
Sherry Jo will be in my prayers tonight,may she and my sister sleep peacefully.
Good luck with the survey,it is true these days kids are expected to be quiet and not seen,sad times i hope you make a change.
Love Kristina XxX

Hi Sweetie...It is so admirable for you to try to get a bunch of old fuddie-duddies to wake up to the needs of the younger community. I'll cross my fingers for it to meet with the borough's approval...surely they'll see it as a good investment in the kids' future. ;-) Bo

Archer said...

Thank you for visiting and commenting on my blog! I will definitely be thinking about you as you work on this project. I think Skateboard parks are a wonderful place for youth who enjoy that type of sport to gather. Good luck!

Skateboarding is here to stay, I know it was a hot item in the early seventies. We also had to go a distance to find a skate park. Our town a couple years ago realized we need to make something for the kids to keep them from doing this on our streets, and now we have our skate park. I am sorry your town has made it illegal for the kids to skateboard, it has to be hard on them.

Hi Sweetie,
This is the first time I have been to your blog. My husband recently opened a skateboard shop in Bristol PA called The Barking Spyder Board Shop. I don't know what area you are from, but we are trying to get a park built in that area. If you are near there, maybe we could join forces!
The picture of your family is gorgeous. I have 4 kids, the oldest is married, but no grandchildren yet. You are very blessed.

Hello everyone!
I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For quite a long time, I make money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my blog to get additional info.
