Skate Park Needs Young Voices: The City of North Adams is beginning a project to design and eventually construct a community skate/BMX park. The design company, Spohn Ranch, in conjunction with the city and the nbCC, are providing additional ways to participate – they want to hear from skaters, BMX bikers, and In-line skaters and community members in order to make a park that is fun to ride for all abilities, and styles of riding while being welcoming for those who don’t skate or ride. There is a Facebook group with an electronic survey asking skaters and riders about their preferences. The Facebook page will be a place to post ideas. This is also a great way to get notifications about the park and up coming meetings.
