Thank you for your input on the proposed installation of skateboard facilities adjacent to the West 6th Street Rails-to-Trails near NW 7th Avenue. Based on the input received from the citizens, City Staff has recommended to the City Commission that these facilities NOT be installed in this location.

In general, the feedback provided at the public meeting was opposed to the concept at this location and mixed regarding the concept at other locations perhaps further south. Online feedback has been mostly positive regarding the installation of these facilities near the bicycle trail. After reviewing all the comments received from both forums, City Staff is recommending other locations be analyzed for suitability based on right-of-way width, proximity to the trail, and existing lighting. Once the additional potential locations have been identified and analyzed, another public meeting will be held with invitations being sent to nearby property owners as well as all attendees of the previous public meeting.

Thank you again for you involvement in this project. Please feel free to forward this message to anyone you think may be interested and let me know if you have any further comments or questions.
