Linda Byers from the Recreation board spoke to council about some grants available to entertain the idea of a multi-sport court. The grant window opens in January and closes in April. At a prior meeting an interest in a skatepark was brought up by Logan Irdi. Information was gathered by Linda Byers regarding a location for the park and the similar designs in other municipalities. Linda will schedule a meeting with Logan and the Borough Manager to further discuss the interest and fundraising efforts for the sport court. Councilmembers expressed concerns limiting the park to just skateboarding, skateboarding can just be a fad and then the area just creates a place for destruction and graffiti when left idle.
