Portland skatepark update

Here’s an update from February 26th on Portland’s next two skateparks:

Gabriel had its Development Permit submitted on January 17th and it should have be approved by now. Airspeed will start digging around in Gabriel Park next week!

Ed Benedict’s Development Permit is slated to be submitted in early March and Parks thinks that should have that approved by the end of April. Its sounding like New Line/California Skateparks will be able to develop a much larger sq. footage than the original 8500, although the final size is still being negotiated. They are confident that all the “transitional” elements that were in the final design concept presented to the public will be included in the final design.

So we might have two more skateparks by the end of summer.
