Sounds like Airspeed Skateparks will have a revised design at the first meeting and they will have a week to incorporate design input from the public and show a final design. If you have strong feelings about this park you should plan to attend these meetings. Remember, Parks asked for proposals for a transition park design for Gabriel and the next one at Ed Benedict will be a plaza-style park.
