Replacing the abandoned library at Rutenburg Park with a new skate park

After reading a recent article on Rutenburg Park of Fort Myers, FL on the Fox4 website, I've was left with a few thoughts. The article "Drugs, alcohol, and sex plaguing kids in Fort Myers park" brings a good point to the reasoning behind the increase in the poor activies behind the abandoned library which stands in the back, reminding us our kids used to skate! Our local skatepark closed down leaving our youth without somewhere to "let loose" and constructively use their energy. The library has been closed for some time now and instead of being a place of educational growth, is now a place for brain cell destruction, so I propose a change! Retire the old and bring in the new by replacing the abandoned library with a new skate park! Rutenburg almost has it all with nearly every sport's field and court, lets let our skaters chill too.
