Economic benefits
*Tends to draw people from surrounding communities to come bring their kids to the skatepark, do some shopping, maybe have lunch, buy gas, etc.
*Skateparks attract patrons to local businesses who might not otherwise be in the are.
*Skateparks allow the community to see that skateboarding youth are passionate, dedicated athletes that seek out physical recreation.

We would like to have a safe place to ride that we know is ok with the community.
