The City of Manhattan Beach is exploring the possibility of developing a skateboard park and we need your help! Please share your feedback regarding the proposed size, design and location options below for a potential skate park.
Please take 5 minutes to complete a survey to help us gather valuable community feedback in order to assist in evaluating the feasibility of a skate park in the City of Manhattan Beach.
The City conducted a recent, statistical community survey where a majority of respondents favored a smaller skate park if there was no city funding involved (View Community Survey Results). In addition to the community survey, a total of nine Ad-Hoc Committee, Commission and City Council meetings were held to discuss the feasibility of a skate park. The July 14, 2014 staff report to the City Council highlights the public outreach.
The City Council approved a contract to Stantec Park Planning Services to review data from previous skate park public outreach meetings, conduct a community needs assessment and skate park survey, conduct a site analysis and assessment of previously reviewed and potential locations throughout the City, develop and facilitate community outreach meetings and public input process, and make recommendations on potential sites, skate park types, and funding sources.
In addition to the survey, the City of Manhattan Beach will be holding a Skate Park Community Meeting on Thursday, August 6th from 6:00-8:00 p.m. at the Joslyn Community Center. Mr. Kanten Russell with Stantec's Action Sport Team will provide a "Skate Park 101" overview and facilitate break out discussions to receive community input on skate park location, size and design.
Goals/Outcome for the first meeting will include:
- "Skateboard Park 101" Overview
- Prioritization of the top three possible site locations, designs and size.
A follow up community input meeting will be held in September to summarize the feedback and present the top priorities for size, design and location. The information gathered from the survey above and the Skate Park Community Meetings will be presented in a formal staff report to City Council at a Regular City Council Meeting this winter.
