Skateboarders Show Support for New Skatepark


A big turnout during Tuesday night 's Bend Parks and Recreation meeting to discuss future plans for Miller's Landing. Community organizer Justin Gottlieb is a big advocate for a skate park there and has circulated a petition with one thousand signatures on it, to push for that. He says a lot of people feel disenfranchised. “They were just being dismissed. They were being told skateboarding is not a legitimate recreational activity. I believe for my generation, it very much is a legitimate recreational activity.” But Ted Schoenborn on the Parks and Rec Board says the public process allows everyone to have a voice. “Certainly they're being heard, it’s part of the public process. That’s why its important to understand what elements go into any particular park and the process we use.”
