Why this petition matters
Our friends Tom Coleman and Cole Oban, along with Tom’s father Dave Coleman, tragically passed due to carbon monoxide poisoning August 31st, 2022. These men were loved by many, and their passing has affected many. Tom and Cole were avid skaters and were a part of the ever growing community in the Omaha metro area. We are petitioning to build a skatepark in their honor at Timber Creek Park. From what many have observed there is plenty of open space in the park for a skatepark, and it would open up the opportunity for more to learn to skate and be a part of the the community. Tom and Cole were selfless and always open to helping others, whether it be teaching them to skate, giving them a couch to sleep on, or even just being there to talk to someone. For the people who were closest with them, we feel that it would be an honorable commemoration of their lives.
