Skate park input
Hindmarsh Shire Council leaders will seek community feedback for the next stage of a new skate park at Nhill at a meeting next week.
Mayor Ron Ismay said since the council announced the project there had been considerable discussion in the community about the proposed location and design.
“Council hosted community consultations during the preparation of the grant funding application. We now intend to hold further consultations prior to detailed plans being established,” he said.
“These consultations will allow residents to ask questions and to gain an understanding of the processes already taken in developing the concept designs and site selection of the skate park.”
The council will host a community consultation session at Nhill Memorial Community Centre on Wednesday at 7pm.
The State Government has provided $100,000 for the project through its 2018–2019 Community Sports Infrastructure Fund.
The council will contribute the balance of money for the project.
Cr Ismay said the new skate part would be constructed from concrete and designed to encourage and challenge new and experienced skaters alike.
He said the Nhill skate park would be different from similar projects at Dimboola and Rainbow, providing three unique challenges for participants across the shire.
“I encourage all residents of Nhill who are interested in this skate park project to attend the community consultation at Nhill Memorial Community Centre,” he said.
