Silverton has an opportunity to receive a grant for $50k to go toward building a Skate Park. This is not "just a skate park" but a gathering place for the whole community. You can vote daily in July at the Pepsi Refresh Project.
The stated mission of the project organizers... "The Goal of this project is to construct a skate park in Silverton Oregon and provide a facility for area youth and families to gather, socialize and perform skating and cycling skills in a safe, family-friendly environment."
This sounds like an improvement over kids wandering around with nothing to do, or sitting on a couch with a bag of potato chips. I'm a supporter and rockin' the vote daily. I hope you'll cast a vote for a much needed community gathering place. It only takes a minute and will make a big difference in our community. Thanks for your support!
