Staff report recommends Centennial Park as skatepark/bike track location

A July 21 report from city parks director Kerry Dawson is recommending that Centennial Park be set as the location for the proposed new skateboard and bike park facilities.

A July 21 report from city parks director Kerry Dawson is recommending that Centennial Park be set as the location for the proposed new skateboard and bike park facilities.

Dawson says an ongoing public consultation process culminated in a July 5 public meeting where the location was favoured by those in attendance. The report notes the Doug May field and and some adjacent land were initially proposed, but that more site work is needed before a final location in the park is chosen. Dawson requests staff be given the okay from council to begin that site location work.

If the field is used, another diamond would be renamed the Doug May field.

The report notes new baseball facilities are being built as part of the new schools project, but doesn’t specify exactly how many.

Council will discuss the report at their July 26 meeting. Also on the agenda at that meeting is a letter from Revelstoke Minor Ball President Lina Sihlis asking that the proposed facilities not be located on an existing baseball field. The organization has also circulated a petition in town requesting that no baseball diamonds be removed.
