If you’re interested in seeing the latest design proposal for Roxhill Park’s “skatespot” skatepark – before a design is finalized – tomorrow night is your big chance. As first reported here last Monday, the meeting originally planned for a final review of both the skatespot and renovated playground will now focus ONLY on the skatespot (the playground review was moved to 11/30). It’s at 6 pm tomorrow in Southwest Library‘s upstairs meeting room. The previous design draft, described as a “basic street plaza,” was shown there a month ago (here’s our meeting coverage, including video). There’s much to discuss, according to city Skatepark Advisory Committee chair Ryan Barth:
Parks and California Skateparks received a lot of feedback on the preliminary design schematic presented at the second design meeting in October and received additional feedback since that meeting. The Parks Project Manager has told me that all of the feedback received to date has been provided to California Skateparks and they are currently working on a formal presentation and new design layouts to show at Monday’s meeting. There are currently two favored footprints (different from what was shown at the 2nd meeting) and both include varied layouts within those footprints. There are also some experiments with other alternate footprints. They will reduce these footprints/layouts down to the top three that work best within the space and present these at the meeting.
By the way, Barth and the rest of the Skatepark Advisory Committee will hold their regular meeting immediately after the Roxhill review, 7 pm at SW Library. That’s not the usual location, but since the skatespot discussion is of high interest, they decided to have it there.
