City gets its skates on for park at last
PETITIONERS for a skate park in Midland have got their way.
The City of Swan resolved earlier this month to set aside $850,000 for a facility in Gray Drive, Midvale, after a petition was lodged at a special electors meeting earlier this year.
The council decided to start planning for the site at lot 300 after rejecting a council officer’s recommendation to hold off until the City’s open space and community building strategy for Midland was finalised.
The council asked its chief executive to find funds to enable design to be completed this financial year ahead of construction in mid-2019. The City will consult with petitioners and stakeholders.
Councillors noted the skate park was required to meet the needs of the community.
