BRATTLEBORO—The Selectboard will visit four sites for the potential town skatepark in August. The board hopes interested members of the public will attend, and provide feedback.
The Aug. 4 special Selectboard meeting will start at 5:30 p.m. at the Elm Street parking lot.
After viewing the site and collecting public comment, the board will move to the Crowell Lot at the intersection of Union Hill and Western Avenue. Then the board will visit the sites at Living Memorial Park off Western Avenue.
The Skate Park Site Committee presented its top-recommended sites for a 6,500 square-foot skate park to the town on July 1.
Using a points system it devised, the committee determined that the Elm Street lot — now a metered parking area at the intersection of Elm, Flat, and Frost streets — was the top choice, at 1,819 points.
The Crowell Lot came in second at 1,518 points, followed by the two sites at Living Memorial Park — the basketball area (1,458 points) and the upper field above the skating rink (1,428 points).
