phew. We hope.

Wow, what a relief. Gage and I attended the meeting today and the overall feeling both of us had was very positive. The parks department was very concerned about losing the skateboard park and was assured by the reps from Marion that it will be safe.

Gage and I spoke with the Dean Peterson and Deborah Lawrence after the meeting and they were very happy to meet us and look forward to opportunities to collaborate with events. Their number one concern is the community and they are using the recent rise in cycling popularity to our advantage.
During our conversation there was even mention of the long forgotten park addition that was in the original plan. There main goal is to revamp all of the infrastructure, build some bike courses, and actually generate revenue through cycling events and summer programs. Lets keep our fingers crossed and keep pushing for new stuff!
