Public input sought on Peachland skate park design
The District of Peachland is looking for input from the public on the design of a new skate park on the south side of the tennis courts in Lambly Park.
"There is far more value engaging the youth and other potential users in the project rather than the design team and my department going at it alone," said Cheryl Wiebe, director of community services.
"We want this park to be multi-use in nature and designed with the community needs in mind."
A design workshop will be held on Aug. 22 with youth and stakeholders in the park design.
New Line Skateparks Inc. will be bringing some concept drawings to the meeting. Those attending will have an opportunity to review the draft designs and make recommendations and suggestions on how to make the park better.
Final designs will be presented to the community later in September.
The skate park is expected to be built by late fall or early spring 2013.
Those interested in being a part of the design committee are asked to contact Wiebe at 250-767-2133 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
