August 25th , The City of Wilmington City Council passed ordinances
– 11-037 & 11-038 for funding of the skateboard park.
renews the ordinance that was originally passed in December of 2006. The city still has to go to the bond
market to acquire the money in hand.
We have inquired about when this will happen but have not heard to date.
we share in the frustration of how far behind we are as a community in acquiring
these much needed facilities. However we are happy with successes in creating
the East 7th street skate spot and advocating since 2003 for
skateparks in New Castle County, with the Glasgow Skatepark currently being
can still exercise your freedom to be heard and occupy your place in your
government by contacting the city through its website to urge the pursuit of
the bond money. http://www.ci.wilmington.de.us/
thanks to Brannon John for spearheading the 7th street effort and to
the rest of the Kinetic crew, Tyler and the Switch crew, Jesse and the crew at
Fifth Pocket Designs and many individuals. Also thanks to NCC, Jon Husband and Councilman Tackett for
keeping the Glasgow project alive.
