Silverton Skate Park

By
Title Insurance with AmeriTitle

 

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!

Rosi - Seems like this would be a no brainer for your community. Good luck with it and hope it passes.

Rosi: I sure hope this gets approved. Anytime we have public places for kids and family is a plus! There's not enough of them. I'm in...

When I originally heard about these and started to get them around here, I thought it was going to be trouble. But, to be honest it has actually been the exact opposite. The kids are occupied and don't see to be causing as many problems.

Great to hear that first hand feedback Todd.  I am the kind of mom who would love for my children to wear a helmet to just walk out the front door so I had my hesitation in supporting this at first.  But with some research and also an amazing group of project coordinators, I am sold.  Can't wait for us to have this addition to our cmmunity.
