The Brattleboro Skate park is back in action! We felt unprecedented support from the Brattleboro town select board last night. Not only did they vote unanimously, but they offered support toward the feasibility studies. Everybody had an opportunity to be heard and there was a transparent, comprehensive site selection process.
The site selected was the lower, northeast corner of Living Memorial Park. Public feedback and the consensus of BASIC is that Memorial Park overwhelmingly is the most sensible spot. After all, it is a 66 acre park designated for recreation. The Memorial Park location offers the following:
- A multi use recreationally zoned area
- Bathroom facilities
- Easy access and parking
- Great neighborhood
Our next step is to conduct the feasibility study, which is to determine if the properties infrastructure is suitable for a skate park.
BASIC embodies the motivation and commitment characteristic of skateboarding itself. Now, we are going full speed ahead into fundraising. We are dedicated to seeing this skate park project through to completion!
