City wants to hear from skaters on park plans

They can help choose equipment for city facility on Jan. 26

Skaters, mark your calendars! Three skate park designers and vendors will be at Chiefland City Hall on Jan. 26, looking for your input on the city’s new skating court, to be built at Delma Locke Park behind Chiefland middle and high schools.

The city’s Recreation Committee met Thursday to review submissions by four designers whose proposals had been requested by Project and Finance Coordinator Laurie Copeland. Copeland explained in detail the proposals of three of these: American Ramp Company (ARC), Rampage and REP Services/Skatewave. The fourth vendor, Spohn/Urban 8 Design, would not agree to a material standard the city could meet, and would not warrantee materials accessible by the city; hence, Spohn’s proposal has been rejected.

Copeland said the vendors had been given a budget of $92,000, and had responded with a variety of designs. ARC submitted three off-the-shelf designs, including one each from its all-steel Pro Series, all-concrete Solo Series, and tri-layer, Skatelite-surfaced X-Series, but offered to design a one-of-a-kind park just for Chiefland, all within the stated budget.
